STORRS, Conn. — The UConn men’s basketball program has received signed Letters of Intent from two incoming student-athletes, guard Jalen Adams and forward Steve Enoch.
Adams is a 6-2 guard from Roxbury, Mass., who currently attends Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, N.H., while Enoch is a 6-10 forward from Norwalk, Conn., who currently attends St. Thomas More School in Oakdale, Conn.
“We’re very excited to have both these young men coming into our program,” UConn Coach Kevin Ollie said. “Not only are they quality basketball players, but quality people and outstanding student-athletes. I know they will be great additions to our UConn family.”
Adams is a 170-pound combination guard who is consistently rated among the top 25 players in his class nationwide by most recruiting services. (ESPN.com ranks him at No. 25.) He is equally adept at getting to the rim and finishing, shooting the three-pointer, or as a playmaker at the point. He is at Brewster Academy for a prep year after graduating from Cushing Academy in Ashburnham, Mass.
Enoch, a 220-pound forward, blossomed this summer while playing AAU ball to jump into the top 75 on most recruiting service lists. The fast-improving big man is a solid rebounder, who shows strength around the rim and has developed a consistent short jump shot. He transferred to St. Thomas More this year after three years at Norwalk High School. As a junior, Enoch averaged 14.4 points, 11.4 rebounds and 3.4 blocks at Norwalk.
Adams and Enoch will enroll at UConn in the fall of 2015.
