UConn first to offer QB Richard Lagow

The wait is over for Richard Lagow (Plano, Texas/Plano).

After months of putting in work on the Plano practice fields, Lagow scored his first offer Monday night, as Connecticut extended a scholarship to him. The 6-foot-6, 220-pound quarterback was offered by UConn running backs coach Clayton White.

“It’s unbelievable. I’m so grateful for it,” Lagow said. “It just feels like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I know it’s just a beginning, but it’s a good start.”

In his first season as a starting quarterback, Lagow threw for 1,646 yards and 13 touchdowns for Plano. In addition to the UConn offer, Lagow has been receiving interest from Rutgers, Texas Tech, Houston and Arizona State.
