The Class of 2021 set to become WestConn Colonials

DANBURY, CT - The Western Connecticut State University playing 2016-17 seasons have ended, but the work is far from done for the 13 head coaches of the Colonials' 14 programs. 

Each of the programs' leaders spend countless hours recruiting student-athletes, that want to continue their athletic endeavors and earn a degree at the Danbury, Connecticut institution.  The shelves are hardly bare, but they are definitely being re-stocked.

Below is a current list of high school student-athletes, which have submitted their deposits and have committed to be a Colonial and attend Western Connecticut State University when the fall 2017 semester begins in late August.  Most of the the programs' head coaches will hold try outs early in the semester, for all committed and returning student-athletes.

Several of the head coaches have filled their needs for the upcoming season, but have chosen not to publish that list at this time.
