Report: Former UConn recruiting target commits to Tennessee

According to a tweet by Kevin Lynch of the Blue Star Report and the Philadelphia Belles, former UConn recruiting target Jannah Tucker committed to Tennessee.

Tucker is a 6-foot wing from Randallstown, Md. whose name has been associated with UConn in the past but there was never the sense that either UConn was pushing hard for her or that Tucker would become a Husky. The closest she came to visiting UConn was when she sat with Connecticut incoming freshman Breanna Stewart (who was her AAU teammate) at the UConn/Villanova game.

Tucker, a member of U-18 national team, is a good get for Tennessee. She was named captain of the last year's U-16 squad and reminds me a little bit of Kelly Faris with her ability and willingness to contribute in a variety of ways other than just scoring.

Former Cheshire Academy star and 2010 Connecticut Sun third-round pick Johannah Leedham was named the MVP at the International Federation Tournament after averaging 21.7 poinrs in the three games.

Leedham had 29 and 22 points in Great Britain's wins over Korea and Argentina before wrapping up the tournament with 14 points in a 73-54 loss to host Turkey on Sunday.
