DeWanna Bonner dishes on her sister, a possible future Husky

Before DeWanna Bonner lit up the Connecticut Sun to the tune of 35 points she gave me a couple minutes of her time to talk about her sister Erica McCall, who happens to be one of the top Class of 2013 targets on UConn's recruiting radar.

"She is a great, great player and we play just alike, run the floor, rebound and get after it," Bonner said. "She has developed in a lot of ways and my dad is out there to help her with stuff. She will be doing well (this) year and hopefully the same in college."

Although there is a significant age different between the sister and Bonner has a hectic schedule with her WNBA and overseas playing commitments, she has tried to be there to give her sister advice since she went through this process when she committed to Auburn.

"I try," Bonner said. "We don't talk as much as we should but I try to give her as much advice as I could. She is enjoying it, what teenager wouldn't enjoy this kind of attention and she deserves it. She is taking it all in, taking it day by day."

So what advice would she give McCall during the recruiting process.

"Just make sure it is your decision don't let anybody pressure you. I am definitely not and if that is the case she would be going to Auburn (relax NCAA types, she was laughing and joking when she said that)."

Erica McCall is expected to be at UConn next month for the Huskies' First Night fan fest on Oct. 12 and first official practice the following day.
