Auriemma, Dailey have eye on the future

Welcome to the age of twitter where it seems as if ever stop on UConn head coach Geno Auriemma and associate head coach Chris Dailey makes checking up on top prospects in the Class of 2014 is highlighted in 140 characters or less.

Auriemma and Dailey made their way down to see Recee' Caldwell, a 5-8 guard from San Antonio, Tex. a couple days ago and today there were some tweets about the duo stopping at Heathwood Hall Episcopal in South Carolina to check out 6-foot-4 forward A'ja Wilson.

With UConn already having a commitment from Courtney Ekmark and having been linked with Brianna Turner and Sierra Calhoun among others and it seems as if the Huskies could be making a run at a strong class.

I know there are fans wishing that the Huskies could bring in a large group in the Class of 2013 but the reality is that trying to recruit the year after securing commitments from Breanna Stewart, Moriah Jefferson and Morgan Tuck is not an easy task. Recruiting sources have told me that UConn has been focusing much of its attention on the Class of 2014 while their rivals have been butting heads over top Class of 2013 prospects. UConn hasn't completely ignored the current group of recruits as the Huskies are after forward Erica McCall and guards Linnae Harper and Saniya Chong but even if UConn gets only one Class of 2013 commitment in the next couple of months, I would recommend that UConn fans remain patient because the reward could come in a special class the following year.

Thanks for the update. I have it on good authority that Geno will soon be in California (if he isn't there already) for recruiting and golf. Geno is expected to stop by Mater Dei to see Katie Lou Samuelson (class of 2015 and considered the best of the sisters) as well as a couple of other Cali kids (perhaps Drummer, '14).
