A recruiting source has confirmed that Erica McCall, a 6-foot-3 forward from Bakersfield, Calif., is the latest player to surface on UConn’s radar for the Class of 2013. Huskies’ assistant coach Marisa Moseley attended one of her games during a West Coast recruiting trip last week.
McCall, who was a member of the 2011 gold-medal U.S. U-16 team, amassed 1,203 points, 888 rebounds, 64 assists, 102 steals and 468 blocks in 64 games during her first two seasons at Ridgeview High School. She has already set school records for points, rebounds and blocks.
McCall is averaging 26.0 points (57.9 percent FG), 17.0 rebounds and 7.6 blocks this season for the Wolf Pack. She is the sister of former Auburn All-American and current member of the Phoenix Mercury DeWanna Bonner. Her father, Greg, is the head women’s basketball coach at CSU Bakersfield.
The Huskies are also involved with juniors Diamond DeShields, a 6-1 wing from Norcross, Ga., Taya Reimer, a 6-3 forward from Fishers, Ind., Karlie Samuelson, a 5-11 guard from Huntington Beach, Calif., and Saniya Chong, 5-9 guard from Ossining, N.Y.
