It barely took two months of UConn being full-fledged Big East members for Dan Hurley to strike again on the recruiting trail. This past Sunday, Hurley landed coveted 2021 guard Rahsool Diggins, a talented combo guard out of Philadelphia, to kick off his 2021 recruiting class. Just a few months after stealing Adama Sanogo from Seton Hall’s backyard, Hurley made a splash again by prying Diggins away from Villanova. It feels good to be in the mix for talented local recruits again, doesn’t it?
The UConn Pod crew breaks down Diggins’ commitment and chats with Rivals recruiting expert Corey Evans, who also touches on the Huskies’ other 2021 targets and the positive impact of the move to the Big East. Evans also discusses how Hurley and Huskies are doing with in-state center Donovan Clingan, one of the top big men in the class of 2022.
Aside from Diggins’ commitment, the crew discusses the Huskies’ numerous WNBA and NBA alumni in the pros as sports begin to start back up, and Aman and Dan Madigan remember Stanley Robinson and his impact on the UConn program.
