Enoch to stay local, commits to UConn
The defending national champions added their second verbal commitment of the 2015 class late Saturday evening. Steven Enoch, Oakdale (Conn.) St. Thomas More, verbally committed to Kevin Ollie and Connecticut during his official visit. “This whole recruitment process has been a roller coaster for me but at the end of the day I knew in my heart that Connecticut is where I wanted to stay,” Enoch said. Enoch’s AAU coach and mentor George Mathews echoed Enoch’s thoughts playing close to home. “UConn is home and Steve has always dreamed about playing for UConn,” Mathews said. “He was born a Husky. They actually didn't have to recruit him, but after meeting the staff and getting to know Kevin, that put the icing on the cake.” “Kevin is extremely likeable and it's going to be a great fit for Steven,” he added. “I love coach [Glen] Miller and the time he dedicates to developing players.” After a strong spring and summer playing with Mathews’ Team High Rise Team Up, Enoch reeled in plenty of high major interest from coast-to-coast. In the end, UConn beat out Rhode Island, Boston College, Providence, Oregon and others for the commitment. At 6-foot-10, Enoch has impressive size for the power forward spot. He’s mobile, athletic, can mix it up in the paint, is a willing rebounder and has impressive tools on the offensive end. “I believe Steve is going to be extremely special and UConn will help facilitate that,” Mathews said. Enoch is ranked No. 64 overall and as the No. 11 power forward in the 2015 class. Enoch joins Jalen Adams to make up Connecticut’s current 2015 recruiting class.
