Rivals' Corey Evans on 2017 Target Tremont Waters


The UConn Huskies are looking for any and all help they can get filling the four scholarship openings remaining on the roster. They've added two signees in junior college transfer Eric Cobb and Fordham grad transfer Antwoine Anderson but spots remain and the Huskies are running out of targets.

Things have been relatively quiet out of Tremont Waters' camp since he decided to de-commit from Georgetown a few months back. Rivals national recruiting analyst Corey Evans had some thoughts on UConn's chances of landing the in-state star:

The Huskies will remain in the hunt for another piece or two this spring, but the one name that keeps coming up is Tremont Waters... Kevin Ollie’s program has to be perceived as a leader for him. Others including Western Kentucky and Creighton have been connected to Waters, but UConn may end up being the landing spot for the in-state recruit.

Reportedly schools have cooled on interested for a variety of reasons, but UConn can't afford to be choosy at this point. Waters is a supremely talented point guard and someone who can excite Husky fans about the future.

We know that new associate head coach Raphael Chillious is tasked with his recruitment and could give UConn a better chance of landing Waters than the first time around.
