UConn to check out Class of 2018 guard Luguentz Dort
UConn assistant Ricky Moore will head down to Orlando and see Dort on Thursday morning, according to Conrad coach Shaun Wiseman. Moore and Wiseman are good friends, dating back to when the two were assistant coaches for the Charlotte Royals AAU team about six years ago.
Dort, who hails from Montreal, has already received offers from Florida, Arizona State, Baylor, Virginia, Oregon and Louisville. Rick Pitino saw him at an open gym a few weeks ago and offered him a scholarship on the spot. Florida is showing the most interest right now - head coach Mike White apparently loves him, and assistant Dusty May is at the nearby Conrad campus often.
Conrad has some other prospects, including 7-foot-2 Aristide Boya from Cameroon, who Moore will take a look at, as well.
