I totally forgot to post this last night but this is a big blow for the UConn Huskies football team as Robbie Frey was the only running back not named Jordan Todman to do any damage last season.
Here’s the release from UConn:
STORRS, Conn. (February 15, 2011) — University of Connecticut tailback Robbie Frey (Lehighton, Pa.) has announced that he will not return to the Husky program for the 2011 season. Frey will receive his undergraduate degree from UConn this May in history and political science and had a fifth year of eligibility remaining based on being redshirted during the 2007 season.
Frey indicated that he intends to enroll at a Division II institution and play there for the 2011 season as he begins graduate study.
“This is a personal and life decision for me,” says Frey. “I was going to be able to begin my graduate studies at UConn this fall and play another season for the school. I want to thank everyone associated with the University, who gave me the opportunity to come back for the 2011 season.”
