Talented recruit commits to UConn basketball

UConn scored a major recruiting victory by landing talented small forward Sidney Wilson.

The news was first reported by Rivals, a recruiting website.

Wilson, a 6-foot-7 wing player from the Bronx, nearly committed to UConn earlier this year before he selected St. John's. So it made sense that when Wilson recently decided to transfer that the Huskies would be a strong contender.

Since Wilson, a top 75-ranked player in his recruiting class, attended summer school at St. John's, UConn will need to secure a waiver from the NCAA for the former Brewster Academy standout to be eligible this season.

Wilson averaged roughly 17 points and five rebounds last season for Brewster, a prep school powerhouse in New Hampshire. Brewster went undefeated and won the national prep school championship.

In other recruiting news, Kamiri Smith made an unofficial visit to UConn on Friday. He tweeted out a picture posing with UConn coach Kevin Ollie and another shot of him sitting in a chair in front of sophomore Alterique Gilbert's locker.

Smith, a 6-2 guard from San Francisco, is attending Woodstock Academy Prep.
