UConn receives commitment from Lubin

Recruit Rakim Lubin watched UConn’s first basketball practice on Saturday during his official visit.

Guess he liked what he saw from his seat at Gampel Pavilion.

Lubin, a 6-foot-7, 220-pound forward from Gadsden, Ala., gave the Huskies a verbal commitment, according to a Twitter report @OntheRadarHoops. He transferred to Buford High School after attending Gadsden.

Allen Whitehart, his coach at Buford, confirmed Lubin’s commitment on twitter @WhitehartHoops.

“I’m really excited for him,” Whitehart wrote.

Lubin is a member of the Class of 2014.
