Kenny Wilson and Warren Spivey, two key defensive players on a St. Joseph's Prep team that reached the Catholic League semifinals this season, have given oral commitments to attend the University of Connecticut.
Wilson, 6-foot-3 and 226 pounds, is expected to play middle linebacker for the Huskies, who are in the process of jumping from Division I-AA to Division I-A. The 6-2, 265-pound Spivey will play defensive tackle.
The selection of Connecticut was a solid choice for both players, said St. Joseph's coach Gil Brooks. The two returned Sunday from the Storrs, Conn., campus, where they met with new coach Randy Edsall and his staff.
