UConn football gets commits from Norwalk’s Cam Edwards, Windsor’s Prince Samuels

The UConn football team has landed two more in-state commitments. Camryn Edwards from Norwalk and Prince Samuels from Windsor have decided to play for new Huskies coach Jim Mora, sources told GameTimeCT Sunday.

The traditional National Signing Day is Wednesday, although players already signed in the first period in December. Victor Rosa of Bristol Central is among those who have already signed, along with Ben Murawksi (OL, St. Thomas More), Derek Spearman Jr. (DB, Loomis Chaffee), Denzel Mountali (TE, Loomis Chaffee) and Brady Wayburn (OL, Loomis Chaffee).

Edwards, the New Haven Register/GameTimeCT state player of the year, rushed for 1,666 yards and 23 touchdowns to lead the Bears to a 7-3 record. As a defensive back, the 6-foot, 170-pound Edwards had 40 tackles, three interceptions, a fumble recovery, a blocked field goal and a sack. He was also considering Central Connecticut and URI.

Samuels, a 6-4, 215-pound defensive lineman was also a New Haven Register/GameTimeCT All-State selection. Samuel Samuels amassed 70 tackles, had 14 sacks and made 21 tackles for a loss to lead Windsor to an 11-2 record and trip to the CIAC Class L championship game. He also caused four fumbles and recovered one.

Edwards and Samuels both play basketball for their high schools.
