Edge rusher Kevon Jones will also return to the roster, reportedly being moved to adhere to the new defense system.
There are two injury reports on UConn's side, Cameron Ross sustained a foot injury, while the reason for Matt Drayton's leave is undisclosed. The two will likely not join the upcoming game.
