Enoch Calls it for UConn
Steve Enoch made a verbal commitment to the University of Connecticut late Saturday night, drawing an end to his recruitment just midway through his first official visit.
While the process might have come to an early end, it was not an unexpected one. In fact, Enoch’s choice was anything but a surprise since he had no other official visits scheduled and had publically acknowledged that he had grown up dreaming of playing for the Huskies.
The six-foot-ten big man is a classic late bloomer, typically a marker for future success. He was anything but a big name prospect as an underclassman but started making drastic strides towards the end of his sophomore season at Norwalk.
In fact, it was the 2013 New England Elite 75 Showcase that Enoch delivered a breakout performance, making a name for himself in the region in a big way.
Almost twelve months to the day later, Enoch had a similar performance, only this time it was on a national stage as he traveled to California in June for the Pangos All-American Camp and ended up making national headlines in the process.
Unfortunately, Enoch also suffered a deep leg bruise in June, one that has continued to hobble him at various points in the weeks since.
He was only able to play one week of the July evaluation period before having to shut it down for the rest of the month. The highlights below, care of Courtside Films via YouTube, come from that performance at the Reebok Breakout Classic.
Most recently, Enoch arrived at St. Thomas More School where he will finish his high school career after transferring from Norwalk High School following his junior year.
Enoch is the second player to commit to UConn in the class of 2015, joining fellow New England product, Jalen Adams.
