Taking a look at potential three-stars

Since finishing its first season as a member of the Big East in 2004, UConn has been able to consistently reel in three-star players, making next Wednesday's announcement of the nation's three-star players a special date for any Huskies fans. Consider the following:


  • In the class of 2005, the Huskies signed six of the 32 three-star players they offered: Donald Brown, Todd Dorcelus, Rob Getek, Joe Akers, Brandon Dillon and Kitt Pommels. The team did not sign either of the two four-star players it offered.


  • In the class of 2006, the Huskies signed four of the 27 three-star players they offered: Jarvis Hicks, Greg Robinson, Brad Kanuch and James Nixon (who would later defer to the class of 2007). The team did not sign any of the six four-star players it offered.


  • In the class of 2007, the Huskies signed four of the 39 three-star players they offered: junior college Tyler Lorenzen, Kashif Moore, Gary Bardzak and C.J. Marck (in addition to Nixon). The team signed one of the ten four-star players it offered in Jarrell Miller.


At this point in the class of 2008 recruiting, the Huskies have confirmed offers out to nine four-star players, with four others connected to UConn. Which targets could earn initial three-star status next Wednesday?
