Newcomers Daniel Hamilton, Rakim Lubin, Arrive In Storrs

by Categorized: Uncategorized

UConn fans can rest easy. Daniel Hamilton is on campus, as is Rakim Lubin, the Huskies’ other incoming freshman.

Hamilton, a 6-foot-7 combo guard, never wavered in his commitment to UConn. He made an oral commitment in May of 2013, but did not want to sign a Letter of Intent. His brother was not allowed to transfer from Texas El-Paso, so the family did not want to sign a binding letter. Instead, Hamilton signed a financial aid agreement.

So there was all kinds of speculation. …  But, again, he never wavered about coming to UConn, as long as Kevin Ollie stayed. And Hamilton kept his word, arriving from Los Angeles on Tuesday night and enrolling for the summer session of classes that begins on Monday. He has been tweeting pics of his new teammates and surroundings.

Lubin, the power forward from Buford, Ga., committed in September of 2013 and signed a letter in the spring. Sam Cassell Jr. has been on campus, taking classes since June 2.
