UConn added to its incoming freshman class on Thursday evening, landing a commitment from three-star forward Isaiah Whaley.
The news was reported by virtually every major recruiting insider. He made the decision after on an official visit to the Storrs campus. He had recently taken trips to Miami (OH), New Mexico and Saint Louis.
Whaley is a 6-foot-8 power forward from Mt. Zion Prep. He joins a recruiting class that includes four-star forward Tyler Polley, and three-star big men Josh Carlton and Eric Cobb, a junior college transfer.
With Amida Brimah and Kentan Facey both exhausting his eligibility this past season, in addition to Steven Enoch and Vance Jackson both transferring out of the program, Kevin Ollie is bringing in new-look frontcourt for the 2017-18 season.
