UConn nabs Windsor’s Ormsby from UMass

Cole Ormsby is staying home after all.

Very close to home.

The monster Windsor defensive end switched his verbal commitment from UMass to UConn, The Hartford Courant reported Thursday.

“My family and I talked it over,” he told The Courant Thursday night. “It’s close to home. It just felt right.”

Ormsby, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound end, made 85 tackles and had 17 sacks (leading the state according to MaxPreps.com). Windsor went 11-1, losing only to Hand in the Class L title game.

Apparently, UConn has been making the rounds in-state, attempting to add players from its own backyard that might have committed elsewhere.

So far, the Huskies notched Hand’s Matt Walsh, St. Luke’s Noel Thomas, Cheshire Academy’s Cory Jadusowich and Coventry’s Tommy Myers.
