Recruiting roundup: UConn offers Amida Brimah, Kameron Rooks

|

After missing out on Noah Vonleh and Brandon Austin, UConn is stuck on two commitments — Kentan Facey and Terrence Samuel — for the class of 2013.

Fox Sports national recruiting analyst Evan Daniels said Facey “will give (UConn) some minutes right away.”

“From a rebounding, shot-blocking standpoint, he can help them,” Daniels said. “He’s a good athlete, he’s bouncy and I think he can find some minutes.”

The Huskies, who used to collect guys like Facey, could certainly benefit from adding another rebounder. In the past week, they’ve extended offers to 6-foot-11 center Amida Brimah (per Rivals.com) and 7-footer Kameron Rooks (per Scout.com).

It’s unlikely UConn has room for both (it already has a few project big men), but one might end up in Storrs next year. Brimah is listed at 6-foot-11, 205 pounds, similar to Phil Nolan and Facey. Rooks, the son of former NBA center Sean Rooks, is 270 pounds. Check out their videos below.

    I KNOW KEVIN, KARL AND GLEN ARE GREAT JUDGES OF CHARACTER AND
    ABILITY. I AM CONFIDENT THEY WILL MAKE SOLID DECISIONS WITH
    FUTURE HUSKIES. EVERYTHING TAKES TIME. BE PATIENT- THE BEST IS
    YET TO COME.

    Brimah looks a lot better than Rooks. He has more hops and speedRooks looks like a load and barely gets off his feet. From the video alone, i would prefer Brimah.

    Amida Brimah looks more like an athlete then Rooks.

    But if you can work with Rooks he may have a better upside.
