Sierra Calhoun update

Thanks to my colleague David Borges, I have a little bit of an update on highly-touted Christ the King sophomore Sierra Calhoun.

Sierra's older brother Omar is a UConn men's commit and when Omar was visiting campus over the weekend, Sierra was also at UConn and met with members of the UConn coaching staff (although head coach Geno Auriemma was in Europe with the U.S. national team).

Omar Calhoun Sr., the father of both Omar and Sierra, made his opinion pretty clear of whether he'd like to see both Omar and Sierra play at UConn.

“Absolutely. That’s the goal,” said Omar Calhoun Sr.

He was uncertain if they'd be returning on Friday for the First Night festivities. Currently, the only UConn women's recruits confirmed for Friday night are Bolingbrook (Ill.) High senior forward and UConn commit Morgan Tuck and Spring Valley (S.C.) High senior forward Xylina McDaniel, the only uncommitted senior still on UConn's recruiting radar. There is a report that Taya Reimer, a 6-foot-3 junior out of Hamilton Southeastern High in Fishers, Ind., is planning to be at UConn for First Night and UConn's first official practice.
