A good visit to UConn for Steve Enoch; Huskies offer New Haven's Tremont Waters

Steve Enoch, Ray Smith and Tyus Battle were among a host of top-notch players at UConn on Thursday night, playing in an "open run" while Shabazz Napier was being drafted by the Miami Heat on the big screen TV in Gampel Pavilion.

"The visit was awesome," said Enoch's AAU coach, George Matthews. "He spent time with the coaches. Kevin's awesome, Coach Miller's awesome, and all the other coaches are awesome. Kevin Ollie sets the bar really high. Steve's gonna meet other coaches, and he's going to have to compare them to Kevin."

Enoch will make visits to URI, Providence and Boston College this weekend, then take a trip to Seton Hall on Monday. He's still very early in his recruiting process (he really only blew up on the scene a few weeks ago), so don't expect any collegiate decisions yet.

Matthews said Smith wowed some of the kids at Ollie's basketball camp with alley-oop dunks all over the place. Also in the house was New Haven's Tremont Waters, a Class of 2017 stud from South Kent Prep, as well as Torrington's Jordan Williams, the former Maryland standout. There were a bunch of talented juniors and seniors from Massachusetts and the local area, as well.

Waters was particularly impressive, according to those who were there, and he wound up picking up an offer from UConn. Don't be shocked if Waters makes a college decision soon to take the pressure off and allow him to enjoy his next three years of prep school.
