Remember the Name: Kuran Iverson
Out of all the recruits from Connecticut none have the talent, potential, and lineage as Kuran Iverson. This 6’8” and 185 pound power forward has a unique skill set. He is fluid in open space, has uncanny dribbling skills for one his size, and plays above the rim. The major knock against him is his awkward shooting style. Though he is a bit raw with the back to the basket, he will thrive in a fast tempo team. He is the cousin of Allen Iverson though they rarely speak to each other. With his hometown being Windsor Locks and playing at Northwest Catholic, UConn is very much on his radar, but he has a great interest to follow in his cousin’s footsteps and go to Georgetown, and Kentucky has also shown an interest. Like Andre Drummond, the potential of Kuran is what intrigues teams. He has all the physical tools to become an elite talent. No matter what school he goes to, it will be a short stepping stone to an NBA career.
