As National Signing Day comes to a close, schools have been seeing the letters-of-intent from all of their targets roll across fax machine since 7:00 a.m.
Richard Lagow is unsure of when and where he will sign.
However, there have been a few surprises. One of those surprises comes in the Big East as Connecticut has still not received a fax from longtime quarterback commit Richard Lagow of Plano, Texas.
“I actually got really sick and wasn’t able to go to school today,” Lagow said on Wednesday afternoon. “I had called my coach, coach (Jaydon) McCullough last night and told him I wasn’t going to be able to come in and I wasn’t going to be able to sign today.”
While the strong-armed 6-foot-6, 220-pound passer was likely to sign on Thursday instead, there was a development in Storrs that has his future with the program in doubt.
“I went to the doctor and then came home, took a nap and woke up and saw that UCONN had signed another quarterback (Kivon Taylor). I had always known they were going to sign two but now I would be the third (along with Tim Boyle).
“If I don’t sign with UCONN it won’t be because I was afraid of competition. I just have to see what's going on.”
Lagow still needs to speak with the Huskies coaching staff.
“I haven’t had a chance to talk to the coaches yet today,” he said. “I've talked to the new OC and I'm still welcome there but I just need to see what is going on.”
For the time being, though, he will keep an open mind towards any other schools that wish to recruit him.
“I’m not sure exactly where I’ll be signing,” Lagow said. “I’m not sure when it will be. I’m not saying I won’t be signing with UCONN but I’m looking at all options. Anybody that wants to talk to me and wants to recruit me, I’ll be open to them and listen to what they have to say.”
This past season Lagow threw for 1,970 yards and nine touchdowns while running for another 11 scores.
