Seton Hall transfer Sterling Gibbs, who has whittled his list of prospective landing spots, has planned a visit to UConn, according to the ZagsBlog.com's Adam Zagoria. Gibbs, a 6-2 combo guard, averaged 16.7 points per game last season to go along with 3.8 assists. He also led the Big East in three-point shooting percentage (45).

The six remaining schools vying for Gibbs' talents: Pittsburgh, Ohio State, Baylor, N.C. State, VCU and the Huskies. According to his brother Ashton Gibbs, Sterling is currently in Pittsburgh, he's expected to head to Ohio State sometime Thursday, and he'll visit UConn next week.

Gibbs began his college career at Texas before transferring to Seton Hall. Last season was a rocky one for Seton Hall; the Pirated finished 16-15, the locker room was reportedly unsettled, and Gibbs was suspended two games for hitting Villanova's Ryan Arcidiacono in the face with his forearm.

If the Huskies land him, Gibbs would join 6-7 Shonn Miller as the second transfer this offseason. Miller played previously at Cornell, and he will also use his fifth year of eligibility in Storrs.
