Olander to UConn

Tyler Olander, a 6-9 power forward from Mansfield who attends E.O. Smith High, has committed to UConn, per scout.com.

Olander, who transferred to E.O. Smith (right at the foot of the UConn campus) from Worcester Academy last fall, is a good athlete who can also shoot from distance. He made an unofficial visit to UConn to take in the Huskies' win over Texas on Jan. 23.

It's interesting that the Huskies have gone local to find a big man who can shoot (something they very much need). UConn hasn't had great results with local kids in the recent future, with Doug Wiggins being the latest example.

However, the Huskies have also missed on a couple of kids from the area over the last few years -- Farmington's Tim Abromaitis, who was one of the Big East's leading scorers this season at Notre Dame, and Jordan Williams, who just finished a terrific freshman season at Maryland.

More to come ...
