As expected Saturday evening proved to be a good one for the UConn basketball program, as four-star power forward Steven Enoch decided to verbally commit to Kevin Ollie’s program while on his official visit. Enoch, who attends Norwalk HS in Norwalk, Connecticut and grew up a UConn fan, announced his decision via Twitter.
Enoch, a four-star prospect whose play during the summer sent his name shooting up recruiting rankings, is UConn’s second commitment in the Class of 2015. Guard Jalen Adams, a five-star prospect rated amongst the best point guards in the country, verbally committed to the reigning national champs in late-June.
UConn doesn’t have any seniors in their front court, with junior Phillip Nolan being the lone upperclassman, but there was room for additional talent and depth in the 2015 class. Adding Enoch, whose game has developed a great deal (and there’s room for even more growth), to the fold certainly helps in that regard and there’s room for even more talent provided Ollie and his staff enjoy more success on the recruiting trail.
Among the front court players UConn is still in the hunt for are forwards Chris Clarke and Derrick Jones, and center Diamond Stone.
Next season Enoch will join a front court that, in addition to Nolan, should include sophomores Amida Brimah and Kentan Facey and freshman Rakeem Lubin. The question to be answered now is whether or not UConn can successfully add another body (or two) to the equation.
