Jim Calhoun said a couple of weeks ago that this summer's recruiting period -- particularly August -- will be crucial to the program's future, and that the Huskies are expecting visits from several big-name recruits.
One of them, apparently, will be Noah Vonleh, the 6-foot-9 power forward out of New Hampton School. Vonleh, the No. 2-rated power forward in his class, per rivals.com, is expected to make an unofficial visit in August.
"He's incredibly skilled for a 6-foot-9, 16-year-old with a 7-foot-5 wingspan," said New Hampton coach Pete Hutchins. "He can play multiple positions on the floor, impact the game rebounding and defensively. He shoots it and can put it on the floor."
Vonleh has already made one unofficial to UConn last summer and was also at First Night festivities last October.
Also, the Huskies recently got a visit from Jared Reuter, a 6-8 Class of 2015 forward from Tabor Academy.
Started as UConn men's basketball beat writer for the New Haven Register in August, 2007. Before that, was traveling Boston Red Sox beat writer from 2004-06 for the Journal Register Co. (which included the Register).
