UConn incoming freshman earns MaxPreps All-American honors

UConn signee Sadie Edwards was a fifth-team selection on the MaxPreps All-American team.

Edwards, a Meriden native, averaged 15.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 2.5 steals as a senior at Blair Academy.

The team was well represented with underclassmen on UConn's recruiting radar.

Napheesa Collier, a 6-foot-2 forward at Incarnate Word Academy in St. Louis, and Katie Lou Samuelson, a 6-foot-3 wing from Mater Dei in Santa Ana, Calif., were named to the first team. As luck would have it, they are among the talented high school juniors currently at UConn on official visits.

Kalani Brown, a 6-foot-5 junior from Salmen High in Slidell, La., and Asia Durr, a 5-foot-9 junior out of St. Pius X Catholic in Atlanta, were thord-team selections.

Are you sure UConn is still in on Kalani Brown? In one of your recent updates you listed just Durr, Collier, Boykin, KLS, and Gorecki as players UConn was interested in for '15. Also, Carl Adamec had a piece stating the Huskies interest in Brown had waned.

According to one scout, Brown is a player who needs a fire lit under her, not exactly Geno's type normally.

UConn will be a team of 6'2" and shorter in 2 seasons. Past 2 seasons NC was won with bigs.
