UCONN Lands 2005 Recruit

UCONN has landed a major recruit

Marcus Johnson, a 6-6 athletic wing from Westchester High School in Los Angeles, California, gave a verbal commitment tonight to the National Champs -- the Connecticut basketball program, according to sources close to Johnson.

Johnson had just taken an official visit to the Connecticut program this past weekend. He arrived home this evening and then took about an hour to give a verbal commitment to Jim Calhoun's program.

Johnson had already visited Louisville and also considered Syracuse. More on this story later on this site.
