Lasan Kromah has yet to step foot on the court for the Huskies but he's been in the news a lot recently. Last week, news broke that the former George Washington player was heading to UConn, and then we heard from Kromah himself, as well as his assistant coach at GW.
The takeaway: Kromah will add experience and talent to a backcourt that has plenty of both.
But while the 6-5 guard thinks he can be an "impact player" in Storrs, he's looking for more.
“I wanted to explore somewhere else, in a different environment, and play basketball at a higher level,” Kromah said via the New Haven Register's David Borges.
The DC native averaged 10.1 points per game for the Colonials, second on the team, but after missing his sophomore year with a foot injury, the GW graduate still has a year of eligibility left. He also visited Indiana and Xavier but ultimately decided on UConn.
“I got a good vibe, I really got a sense of family,” Kromah said. “I have a good relationship with Coach (Karl) Hobbs. It’s an opportunity for me to develop and play.”
And for the Huskies, it's a chance to build on last year's 20-win season, and this time with the conference and NCAA tournaments in play.
