Bloomington, IN—Here are the top four impact newcomers for the UConn Huskies:

1. Mike Beaudry, QB- Beaudry is a 6’5”, 250-pound quarterback out of Orlando, Florida, who played sparingly during his first four season at West Florida. (Note: he was the first signee in school history). Beaudry missed three whole seasons due to injuries. In his lone healthy season in 2017, as a redshirt freshman, he was a Division 2 All-American. He established school records for passing yards (3,215), passing TDs (29), and wins as a starter (10). He gives the Huskies some help at quarterback, but will need to prove he can stay healthy and win the job.

2. Art Thompkins, RB- Thompkins is a graduate transfer from Toledo. During his first three years with the Rockets, Thompkins gained 1,427 yards on the ground and scored 11 touchdowns. He should be able to help the Huskies solidify the rushing attack.

3. D.J. Morgan, LB- Morgan is coming from Notre Dame where he redshirted the 2016 season and played in just two games in 2017. He sat out the 2018 season per NCAA rules. He is a 6’2”, 224-pound linebacker who had a ton of potential coming out of California powerhouse Saint John Bosco. If he lives up to his billing, Morgan will be a shot in the arm for a defense that was historically awful in 2018.

4. Ardell Brown, WR- Brown could be another impact transfer for the Huskies. Brown played at Seton Hall University in Pennsylvania before heading to Connecticut. For his career there, he amassed 2,425 yards and 20 touchdowns on 159 catches. He stands at 5’10” and weighs 180 pounds.
