The weekend turned out to be a good one for new UConn head coach Bob Diaco and his staff, which hosted its first-ever batch of recruits in Storrs.
What’s goin on?
Ron Johnson, a 5 foot 11, 212 running back fro Palmetto Ridge High in Naples, Fla., committed to the Huskies over the weekend as did Steve Hashemi, a 6-6, 265 pound offensive lineman from St.Joseph-Trumbull. Sheridan Lawley, a versatile defensive lineman from the Lawrenceville (N.J.) School and his teammate, Anthony Watkins, a 6-1, 185-pound Athlete, also committed.
The Huskies 2014 class stands at 13 now with 15-18 the target for this class.
David Njoku, the 6-4, 217-pound wide receiver from Cedar Grove, N.J. and Rutgers de-commit who also visited over the weekend, I’m hearing, is waiting on an Ohio State offer. UConn wants him.
Also, Johnson appeared to be Louisville-bound before Charlie Strong left for Texas.
UConn had 10-12 recruits visit this weekend including already-committed running back Arkeel Newsome of Ansonia and Logan Marchi of St.Paul-Bristol.
