Gateway senior Tui Brown, a two-way standout for the WPIAL champion, committed Sunday to UConn.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound linebacker and tight end caught a team-best 45 passes for 587 yards and nine touchdowns. He also had 45 tackles, three sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery for a Gateway team that won the WPIAL Class 5A title.

Brown had more than a dozen Division I offers. His list included Air Force, Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Delaware, Duquesne, Navy, Ohio, Robert Morris, Toledo, UMass, Western Michigan and William & Mary.

UConn went 2-10 overall last season, 0-8 in the AAC under coach Randy Edsall. The Huskies are leaving the AAC for independent status before next season.
