UCONN Prospect Has Short List

UCONN target Tyrell Biggs has a terrific second game at the And1 tournament

It's apparent that Tyrell Biggs, at 6-foot-7 and 250-pounds, has outstanding skills for any sized athlete. His sweet stroke along with his wide frame give him an opportunity to be a big impact player on the college level for the 2005-2006 season. It's because of these reasons Connecticut is recruiting him hard in the class of 2005.

Biggs places Connecticut very high on his list. He also has Duke, Maryland, Pittsburgh, Virginia, and Villanova near the top too. "I don't have any leaders," Biggs said. "I hope to make a decision in the Fall and sign in the Fall."

Tyrell plans on taking a visit to Connecticut sometime too. "I want to take some official visits in the Fall," he stated. "I don't have any plans to take any more visits until after July."

Connecticut has Biggs as a priority as do the other schools on the list. It's safe to say that according to Biggs, each of the schools left on his list have an equal shot. "They are all great schools," Biggs said. "There are many factors that will go into my decision. I just have to discuss them with my family."

Biggs plans on going to Colorado Springs next weekend. His 35 points in a second round game yesterday afternoon at Seton Hall in the And1 tournament weren't good enough to keep his team into contention. His team, Don Bosco Prep, lost to Grady High School of Brooklyn. Biggs will be with his team today in a consolation game.
