Former USC commit Kendal Harris was recently released from scholarship, and UConn was among the many schools to make contact, according to Joey Natale of Coast 2 Coast Hoops.
Harris, a 6-foot-4 point guard and one of the few remaining top 100 recruits in the 2013 class, de-commited from USC following the firing of coach Kevin O’Neill. A versatile 6-foot-4, 195-pound guard from Richardson, Tex., Harris also heard from Oregon, Texas, Texas A&M, Auburn, San Diego St, Virginia, TCU,Texas Tech and Creighton, Coast 2 Coast Hoops reported.
UConn, unsure if either Shabazz Napier or Ryan Boatright (or both) will go pro, is in the market for another guard in 2013. Right now, the Huskies have received commitments from Kentan Facey (6-foot-9 forward), Terrence Samuel (6-foot-4 guard) and Amida Brimah (6-foot-11 center).
