Moriah Jefferson to sign with UConn on Thursday

I've reached out to the coaches of UConn commits Moriah Jefferson, Breanna Stewart and Morgan Tuck to get an update on when they plan on signing their national letters of intent.

Alan Burt, who coaches Jefferson on the THESA Riders squad which has won five straight National Christian HomeSchool National Championships, said that Moriah is planning to have a signing party on Thursday at 11 a.m. local time (noon here in Connecticut). The event will take place at Crossroads of Life Assembly of God Church in Duncanville, Texas.

Speaking of the THESA Riders, they will open the season on Tuesday at Brock High School.

According to Cicero-North Syracuse (N.Y.) coach Eric Smith said that no ceremony is planned at the school for Stewart to sign her letter and that she will sign the letter at home. He was uncertain which day she will sign the letter.

"To be honest with you I think they will do it when they have a chance at home, they don't have a certain day in mind," Smith said in an e-mail to the Register.

I haven't heard back from Anthony Smith of Bolingbrook (Ill.) High yet but he told me several weeks back that the school is planning to have a signing-party for all the athletes who are signing letters including Tuck.

What this means is that there will likely be no comment from UConn coach Geno Auriemma about the recruiting class after Wednesday's exhibition game against Pace since he prefers to reserve comment until all the letters have been received.
