Top UConn recruiting target to announce decision on Saturday

Charli Collier, one of the top 10 players in the Class of 2018, announced on Twitter on Friday that she was going to make her college announcement on Saturday.

Collier is a 6-foot-4 forward out of Barbers Hill High (about 30 minutes outside of Houston) who was a member of the U.S. team which won the bronze medal at the FIBA U17 World Championships.

She released a list of her top 12 schools in August which included UConn and took an unofficial visit to UConn last month as she was in attendance at First Night festivities.

I caught up with Collier during the junior national team trials and it was one of the easiest interviews I've conducted with UConn recruiting targets. It was my first time being in contact with her and even during a phone interview she did not hesitate talking about a variety of topics including the death of her father as well as having her mother teach at the same school she is attending.

One way or another UConn will have an idea of where they stand moving forward in the Class of 2018 after Collier's announcement. Although UConn could take up to four players in that class, I'd be surprised if they take that many especially with the coaching staff already pursuing top Class of 2019 prospects Samantha Brunelle, Aliyah Boston, Anaya Peoples and Aubrey Griffin.
