The most highly touted recruit in UConn football history is leaving Storrs after just two seasons.
Dwayne Difton, a receiver that came to UConn from St. Thomas Aquinas in Florida, is transferring from the university, according to the Hartford Courant. Difton could not be reached for comment.
Difton came to UConn with some of the highest expectations of any player in program history, but only finished his two years as a Husky with 22 receptions for 195 yards and no touchdowns. He bounced in and out of the starting line up last season during UConn’s Big East championship run and Fiesta Bowl appearance.
We will keep you posted if Difton is available for comment.
