SNY: UConn Offers HS Junior Haley Golecki

by Categorized: Haley Golecki, UConn women's basketball Date:

According to the official broadcast home of the eight-time national champion, Geno Auriemma made a scholarship offer to Haley Gorecki, a 6-foot junior guard from Palatine, Ill., during her unofficial visit this past weekend.

Gorecki was not at the UConn preseason game against Gannon. Sophomore Kelly Jekot was. But Jekot, a 6-foot guard, went home without an offer. UConn usually does not offer players younger than juniors.

Who is Gorecki? She averaged 18 points and 7.8 reboundsas a sophomore at William Fremd High. She is a two-time Mid-Suburban League all-conference selection.

SNY cites The Girls Midwest Recruiting Report report by stating Gorecki already had offers from schools such as Stanford, Arizona State, Michigan State, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, DePaul, Marquette and Northwestern.
