If you could pull your eyes away from the Florida Gulf Coast men’s game last night to check your Twitter feed, you may have noticed that Jordin Canada, one of the high school guards UConn’s been recruiting to supplement its Class of 2014, decided to stay in California.
She’s going to UCLA to play, which apparently the UConn program will not be doing in 2014-15. But that’s a story for another day.
Canada would have been a nice addition. She’s one of those Moriah Jefferson type guards, only Southern California style. But hey, what can you do?
So for now, the Huskies are left with Courtney Ekmark and Sadie Edwards for 2014, which is pretty good. And Saniya Chong for next year, which is mighty good.
Now UConn refocus on other top-flight types like center A’ja Wilson of South Carolina and guard Gabby Williams of Las Vegas.
But really, don’t lose any sleep over recruiting. New babies are born every day. As Elena Delle Donne, Kelsey Bone and Xylina McDaniel – among many others – have proved, recruiting news is no news until a kid signs (or in this case doesn’t) on the dotted line.
