Recruiting update

The only way Kelsey Bone, considered to be one of the prize jewels in the current recruiting class, will be coming to Gampel Pavilion will be as a member of the visiting team.

UConn had long considered the 6-foot-4 forward/center from Dulles High in Sugarland, Tex., to be a priority but Bone has eliminated UConn from her list and will now choose between Texas, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Illinois and South Carolina.

Krista Gross, a 6-foot wing from Charlotte, N.C., is tops among the list of players currently being recruited by the Huskies. Gross is planning an official visit to UConn from Oct. 17-19 and will be on hand for both the annual “First Night” festivities on Oct. 17 and the first full-scale practice the following day.

UConn coach Auriemma visited the Gross family the first day of the NCAA’s contact period earlier this month.

Kelly Faris, a 5-foot-11 wing from Plainfield, Ind. and the first player to commit to UConnn in the Class of 2009, is also expected to be on campus during the “First Night” event. UConn is also recruiting Jasmine Hassell, a 6-2 post player from Lebanon, Tenn., but no official visit has been set.
