Shirreffs was officially named UConn's starter during fall camp, Mike Anthony of the Hartford Courant reports. "It's Bryant. That's never changed. He's taken over and is moving his game forward. We don't have a quarterback controversy," said head coach Bob Diaco.
Grayson is dealing with a potentially serious lower back injury that has kept him off the practice field this fall, Stephen Igoe of the Hoist the Colors blog reports. "I won't sugarcoat it. He has a lower back injury that's been messing with him since January...We're going to do what's best for him, but we do have a little bit of concern. Hopefully he'll be back soon," said new head coach Scottie Montgomery on Tuesday.
