UConn landed a commitment from a Class of 2017 big man on Wednesday night as three-star forward Josh Carlton pledged to the Huskies.

The 6-foot-9 Carlton hails from powerhouse DeMatha Catholic and took an official visit to see the UConn campus in late August. Carlton also visited Georgetown during the recruiting process.

Carlton joins four-star point guard Makai Ashton-Langford in UConn’s Class of 2017 recruiting efforts. UConn is still going after five-star shooting guard Hamidou Diallo as a main target as they could take two or three more players in this class to fill it out.
