Quentin Snider to Visit UConn on Sept. 20

Quentin Snider, a Class of 2014 point guard who recently pulled out of his commitment to Lousiville, will make an official visit to UConn on Sept. 20, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. He'll also visit UCLA on Aug. 31, Memphis on Sept. 7 (unofficial) and Illinois on Sept. 28 (also unofficial).

Here's what Snider's father, Scott, told the Courier-Journal about his son's interest in the Huskies:

"Quentin has always liked UConn. He was a big Kemba Walker fan when he was there. It's just another one where he just hit it off on the phone with coach (Kevin) Ollie. He said he wanted to go visit. Quentin has talked to them mostly (about the Huskies' point-guard needs). I know they run a lot of three-guard offenses."

Snider had committed to Louisville as a freshman. Since then, Rick Pitino & Co. have recruited numerous other top-notch guards, so Snider apparently figured it was best to search elsewhere.

Elsewhere, Adam Zagoria reports that UConn will get a visit soon from 6-foot-8 Class of 2014 forward Terry Larrier. He'll also visit Florida, Florida State, Miami (Sept. 7) and VCU (Sept. 13). No date was given on the UConn visit.

And according to the Hartford Courant, UConn will also be getting a visit from Abdul Malik-Abu on Aug. 24.
