ST. THOMAS, U.S.V.I. – Terrence Samuel, the guard from Brooklyn who committed to UConn over Labor Day weekend, has signed his letter of intent. Terrence, as is his wont, announced the news himself via Twitter (@TsamuelUconn) at about 2 p.m. this afternoon.
“Officially a Husky. … SIGNED” he told the world. I’ve written some about Terrence already, and this much I can tell you – he wants to be at UConn. Hard to imagine anyone more enthusiastic about his college choice. “It feels good to know you’re all set with college,” he tweeted later.
This means that Kevin Ollie can finally comment on Samuel, and the Huskies landed here a few minutes ago. So we’ll have his first thoughts on his newest player later on.
Have yet to hear anything on Kentan Facey, UConn’s other commit, from Long Island Lutheran. … Still hoping to hear something today.
The Huskies flew on the same plane with Wake Forest, their opponent tomorrow night and Quinnipiac. UConn will be practicing here tonight.
Wake really struggled to beat Radford in its opening game, they had 18 turnovers and allowed 18 offensive rebounds. The Deacons are very young, with seven freshmen playing key roles. Of course, the Huskies aren’t in position to take anyone lightly yet. Here’s a thumbnail look at the game, more to come later on tonight.
Here’s a story on our site by Mike Anthony on former AAU teammates, Shabazz Napier and Quinnipiac’s Ike Azotam.
Hope to talk to Kevin Ollie and some players soon here at the hotel. Will be back in touch later.
