Steve Enoch, the 6-10 big man from Norwalk who spent last season at St. Thomas More prep, committed to UConn Saturday as expected.
“I will be playing College Basketball at The University of Connecticut as of next season," Enoch tweeted.
Over the summer, Enoch didn't hide the fact that he wanted to play for the Huskies.
“Growing up I’ve always wanted to play at UConn and my family wanted me to,” he said at the time, via SNY.com. “And they’ve all been fans of UConn. Now that I have [a scholarship offer] I gotta take it slow because I really have to study their program.”
Enoch was on his official visit this weekend, but he has previously made several unofficial visits and built a good relationship with coach Kevin Ollie. Also not hurting: that national title.
“I watched them win but I was just rooting for them,” Enoch said. “I didn’t have anybody special that I was really rooting for. It was really good that they won and I’m happy for them.”
Not long ago, Enoch wasn't even on the national recruiting radar, which means that he's still growing as a player.
“I think I can get way better,” he said. “I’m just coming off a [thigh] injury and I’m feeling good out there. My wind is up and my motor is running, so just have to keep pushing.”
