Ater Majok visited Connecticut. "The visit was excellent," Smith relayed. "Coach Calhoun outlined the plan that they had for incorporating Ater into their system. Coach Calhoun is a Hall of Fame coach who has the experience in working with producing pros that are similar to Ater."
The Huskies lead in Ater's recruitment was aided when assistant Andre LaFleur jumped on a plane and made the trip to Australia to see Majok at the American International School in Carlingford, Australia.
Majok's recruitment heated up last fall when he played a series of post-Thanksgiving games in the United States. He then returned to Australia and has been back a number of times since. Each trip back he's spent time on a campus.
