04/17/2013 - 2013 Connecticut Pro Day: Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB (6-0 7/8, 195) - Wreh-Wilson ran the 40 in 4.40 and 4.39 seconds, and then stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. Wreh-Wilson had a very impressive positional workout. He stands at No. 48 in my Hot 100 prospect rankings. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

01/24/2013 - 2013 SENIOR BOWL, WEDNESDAY FALLER: CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Connecticut (North Team)...For the cornerback position, Wreh-Wilson looks the part at 6 feet 1 and 192 pounds with 32.5" arms, but his lack of speed has showed up on several occasions during practice this week. He has lined up in both press and off-coverage, but struggles in his transition to quickly flip his hips and blanket his man downfield. Not every cornerback can play man coverage and I'm not sure I would trust Wreh-Wilson outside of zone coverage. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

12/10/2012 - 2012 ALL-BIG EAST SECOND TEAM (COACHES): CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Connecticut, Sr., Edinboro, Pa./General McLaine, has been selected Second Team All-BIG EAST Conference (Coaches selection) for the 2012 college football season. Wreh-Wilson picked off one pass in his final season and it came in the third overtime of the win at Louisville to set up UConn's game-winning field goal. He too collected eight career interceptions, totaling 171 return yards and ran back a pair for scores in 2010. - Connecticut football

11/24/2012 - Chad Christen's 30-yard field goal in the third overtime gave Connecticut a 23-20 upset of No. 19 Louisville on Saturday. Blidi Wreh-Wilson set up the Huskies' winning score by intercepting Teddy Bridgewater's pass intended for DeVante Parker in the end zone. The Huskies ran three plays for 12 yards before Christen's second OT kick gave Connecticut (5-6, 2-4 Big East Conference) its second straight win. Louisville (9-2, 4-2) dropped its second straight but still has a chance for a BCS bowl bid by beating first-place Rutgers (9-2, 5-1) on Thursday.

The Cardinals trailed 10-0 after three quarters and briefly lost Bridgewater with a left wrist injury before the sophomore returned to lead Louisville's fourth-quarter rally capped by his 6-yard touchdown pass to DeVante Parker with 21 seconds remaining in regulation. After trading field goals in the first overtime, Johnny McEntee put Connecticut ahead with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Shakim Phillips before Bridgewater's 25-yard TD pass to Parker. - AP Sports

11/09/2012 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: Don Brown has always felt like if he can hold his opponent to 17 or fewer points, he's done his job. It's hard to argue that point, but 17 might be too many for the Huskies down the stretch. While it held South Florida in check last week, this unit hasn't been the beast that many expected when 2012 began, and it's going to have to disrupt the opposition even more for the Huskies to win. That's a tall order against a Pittsburgh team that can beat opponents both on the ground and through the air. - The Sports Xchange

09/16/2012 - Pasqualoni said there's a chance senior cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson will be ready for Saturday's game at Western Michigan. Wreh-Wilson tweaked a hamstring in practice Thursday and did not play against Maryland. Junior cornerback Taylor Mack did a solid job in his stead. "Blidi did this last year, too, if you recall," Pasqualoni said. "He was out five weeks. That scared me, made me very cautious. ... We'll get a good look at him Tuesday. If you're going to put him in a category, I would probably list him somewhere between questionable and probable. I think there's a chance." - Desmond Conner, The Hartford Courant

08/30/2012 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: Even in an off year where the secondary struggled early and the players were adjusting to a new system, the Huskies came away with 31 turnovers a year ago, including 18 interceptions. That aggressiveness should lead to takeaways against a Minuteman offense that lacks the talent and depth that the Huskies will see once Big East play begins. PLAYERS TO WATCH: Blidi-Wreh Wilson was elected as a team captain for the second season in a row. He'll be joined by fellow seniors Adam Masters, Jory Johnson and Nick Williams. - The Sports Xchange

06/26/2012 - Top-five Connecticut prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson (6-0, 192)...Wreh-Wilson will have to prove he's completely over the knee injury that robbed him of half of the 2011 season, but he offers the combination of size, athleticism and starting experience (enters 2012 with 30 career starts) that scouts are looking for. Voted a team captain in 2010, Wreh-Wilson looked like a potential all-conference selection before suffering the knee injury against Buffalo on September 24. After missing five games, Wreh-Wilson returned to play in the final three and was tested often. Despite not being 100%, he registered nine passes broken up, which tied his previous career high. Scouts are anxious to see if Wreh-Wilson can put it all together for a final big season in 2012. He's certainly shown the flashes of being an intriguing prospect, possessing not only the physical characteristics scouts are looking for but also a flair for the dramatic. Not only has he already tied a school record by returning two of his seven career interceptions for touchdowns, his two interceptions this past season came against top competition (Vanderbilt, Rutgers). - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
