Five-star point guard Alterique Gilbert has committed to Connecticut.
Gilbert, a 6-foot-1 Miller Grove (Ga.) product, chose the Huskies over Louisville, Illinois, Syracuse and Texas. He had trimmed his list to five schools in May, and UConn was the first and only school to which he took an official visit.
“I love the relationship me and coach [Kevin] Ollie have, and my mom as well,” Gilbert told ESPN.com. “My reasoning for the commitment is me being comfortable with the whole situation. I just decided to take the best thing for me and my family. We just came to a conclusion together that it would be the best fit for me.”
