UConn has top-ranked recruiting class

In the eyes of Bret McCormick, who runs the All-Star Girls Report, UConn has the top recruiting class among current rising high school seniors.

UConn commits Katie Lou Samuelson, Napheesa Collier and De'Janae Boykin are rated as the No. 1, 3 and 6 players respectively in the class. Also, Meriden's Kiah Gillespie out of Capital Prep, who recently committed to Maryland, is the No. 24 rated player in the class while Shelton's Stephanie Jones, a Boston College commit who attends Loomis Chaffee is ranked No. 156 and New Haven's Alyssa Alston checks in at No. 166.

The three UConn commits will join former UConn recruiting target Arike Ogunbowale (ASGR's No. 4 rated player) as members of the United States team playing in the 3x3 basketball event at the Youth Olympic Games. The U.S. opens pool play against Romania on Monday. Preliminary round play runs through Aug. 24. The round of 16 and quarterfinals are scheduled for Aug. 25 with the semifinals and finals planned for Aug. 26.
