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.
