Story on Saniya Chong

Figured I would pass on a link to a story the Journal News did on UConn recruiting target Saniya Chong since it gives some detail into the timeline Chong is using to make her college decision. It also mentioned that Chong averaged 40 points per game in the Blue Chip USA Invitational in York, Pa. including a 53-point game against a team from Pittsburgh when UConn coach Geno Auriemma was among those in attendance. The story said that Chong is planning to take her campus visits beginning in September before making a decision. UConn, Louisville, Maryland and Ohio State are the teams still in contention to land the high-scoring 5-9 guard. Also, fellow Class of 2013 UConn recruiting target Erica McCall said in her twitter account that she recently took an unofficial visit to Tennessee. Also on twitter, Class of 2013 recruiting target Linnae Harper and her mom reiterated that she will be visiting schools after she gets back from Europe. Harper and McCall are members of the U.S. team which will be playing in the FIBA U-17 Championship for Women in Amsterdam. The team will reconvene in Colorado Springs on Aug. 1 and after a week's worth of training will head to Europe. What all of this means is that don't be expecting UConn's first commitment from the Class of 2013 any time soon.

Slight quibble on Erica McCall and Tennessee. She traveled to Tenn for an AAU tournament. While there, she went up to Knoxville and was given a campus tour by one of the Tenn freshman (Graves). I don't think any of the Tenn coaches were on campus, nor do I think it was really an unofficial visit as such things go. I haven't heard that Tenn is on her list of schools; in fact, I'd heard that she said no to Tenn. Maybe that's changed but I don't think so. It'll still come down to Stanford v UConn and it's hard to bet against Stanford if she passes admissions.
