Purvis, Hamilton two big steps for Huskies

|

Ever since Jim Calhoun retired, ever since the conference situation went from “this could be trouble” to “well, that happened fast,” the most pressing question for UConn has been clear: Can Kevin Ollie recruit elite talent in spite of the Huskies’ league affiliation?

The addition of Rodney Purvis and a verbal commitment from 2014 wing Daniel Hamilton mark two huge steps for UConn.  You can read my take here.

    I certainly agree with your assessment. In addition to Kevin Ollie’s performance this past season and the reputation that he has, a lot of credit should be given to the UCONN team that over-performed and never quit despite what the doom-sayers predicted. As one player commented, watching the team beat MSU on national TV and the many other impressive victories, especially against Syracuse had to impress many recruits.
