Frazer, Todman named starters

Junior Zach Frazer remained confident through all of spring practice that the starting quarterback job would be his in the fall.

That confidence turned out to be correct on Tuesday afternoon as UConn head coach Randy Edsall announced Frazer will be the Huskies' starter as the team heads into fall camp and the 2009 season.

"Zach Frazer is our number one quarterback coming out of spring practice and he has earned that spot," Edsall said in a release issued by the university. "However, as we continue over the summer and into fall camp, there is still competition at that position, like there is at each spot on the team."

The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Frazer, who transferred from Notre Dame after his freshman season, made two starts for the Huskies in 2008, completing 46 of 83 passes for 536 yards and two touchdowns with six interceptions in five games.

He beat out sophomore Cody Endres, whose numbers - 39-for-84 with 411 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions in five games - were very similar. Redshirt freshmen Johnny McEntee and Casey Turner are third and fourth on the depth chart, respectively.

Frazer's starting role wasn't the only one cemented on Tuesday. Sophomore Jordan Todman will also enter the fall as the starter at running back after rushing for 296 yards and three touchdowns on 47 carries last season.

Senior Andre Dixon, a second-team all-Big East running back in 2007, will be competing with sophomores Robbie Frey and Kelmetrus Wylie as the primary backup.

The complete post-spring depth chart, as released by the university, is below.

NOTE: Starters are listed in blue; more than one starter means the individuals will compete for the position in the fall.
