Calhoun's Recruiting: 'Only Thing I Know is to Keep Going'
Between Andre Drummond, Ryan Boatright and DeAndre Daniels, UConn will be getting more contributions from its freshmen than most top-flight programs this season. Hard to believe that only about 18 months ago, some feared the Huskies would never be landing heralded recruits again.
Here's my story on how UConn and Jim Calhoun stayed the course, even as one top recruit after another was blowing them off back in the spring and summer of 2010.
"(The key thing was) losing a Josh Selby, losing some of the kids we did lose, and to not blink an eyelash, not panic," Calhoun told me. "Instead of moaning about who we didn’t get, what we got is pretty good. I think that’s what you’ve got to do. We stay involved."
