In just a week, UConn women’s basketball has already doubled their 2020 recruiting class from the previous year’s. On Monday, Croatian point guard Nika Muhl announced her commitment to the Huskies.

UConn joined the recruiting process late, first showing interest in Muhl a couple months ago. She chose the Huskies over Louisville, Oregon, Ohio State and USF.
Listed at 5-foot-10, Muhl describes herself as a pass-first point guard.
“I think I’m pretty unselfish, sometimes even too much, and I really think I’m good at making other people around me better,” she said at the Final Four in Tampa.
Muhl wasn’t expected to announce any decision until the early summer after taking visits to each of her schools but ultimately decided on UConn. It helped that the Huskies were Muhl’s dream school growing up.
“I knew so much (about UConn). I followed them since I was little,” Muhl said. “That was actually my dream club when I was little. I followed them, always watched Geno’s videos, late night shows, watched the games so yeah I think I knew pretty much everything about them.”
Muhl is the second player in UConn’s class of 2020, joining fellow point guard Paige Bueckers — the No. 1 player in the class.
