Uconn starts the offseason with a splash

Uconn received a verbal commitment from Nate Miles, a shooting guard. At 6-6 and 173 pounds, Miles has a fluid shot and is a natural scorer. He is rated as one of the top ten players in the ‘08 class. Adding another scorer to the club will add depth and at his height and a little extra weight, he could possibly play the small forward spot, or give Calhoun a chance to run a three guard offense with Dyson and Miles as the wings.

With Garrison possibly leaving, Calhoun has stressed that point guard is the next area of concern and Connecticut is looking into point guard, Donnell Beverly. He isn’t a blue chip and was expected to go to the Mid-Major level but has great court vision and passing skills, though his shot is lackluster.

Another player Uconn is looking at is Ed Davis, a power forward and southpaw but lacks the post game. He’s 6-8 and 215, but plays facing the basket. Connecticut has fierce competition for his services; UNC is also recruiting this top five rated player.
