Men's college basketball: Former St. Frances player Eric Cobb, a 6-foot-9, 295-pound forward who played this past season at Chipola College in Florida, has committed to Connecticut, a source confirmed to The Hartford Courant on Tuesday night. He will have two years of eligibility. Cobb, of Jacksonville, Fla., played sparingly at South Carolina as a freshman. He was arrested, along with a teammate, on March 17 on charges stemming from a string of vandalism incidents involving a BB gun. He applied for the pretrial intervention program. Cobb was later charged in Lexington County with possession of marijuana and, according to The State newspaper of Columbia, S.C., paid a fine of $620. Cobb and South Carolina parted ways after the season and he went to Chipola, the same junior college attended by former St. Frances, Towson Catholic and UConn guard Sam Cassell Jr. Cobb averaged 10.9 points and 8.2 rebounds there. He will be eligible to play for the Huskies next season after making his commitment on an official visit to UConn on Tuesday.
