The UConn Huskies landed the commitment of 2021 Top 50 recruit Jordan Hawkins. Hawkins is a shooting guard and the second commit for the Huskies in the 2021 recruiting class. He will be joining Top 55 recruit and point guard Rahsool Diggins in the Huskies recruiting class. This is a talented pickup for head coach Dan Hurley and the UConn program. Hawkins is currently ranked as the 49th prospect in the 2021 class. He should be a multi-year prospect for the Huskies.

UConn has continued to rebound nicely with head coach Dan Hurley. The program is fairly historic and would like to return to its championship-winning ways. UConn is fairly used to landing talented recruits and Hawkins will be a welcome member of the program when he suits up for them. Hawkins is currently ranked as the 20th best recruit in the history of UConn’s program. He can provide a multi-year starting guard for the Huskies and help bring about some roster stability.
The DeMatha Catholic High School product still has another year of high school to fine-tune his skills before he joins the UConn Huskies. Hawkins is listed at 6’5″ and 170 pounds which are viewed as an ideal height and weight for playing shooting guard in college basketball. The Coronavirus Outbreak has made recruiting difficult, but Hawkins quickly picked the Huskies after they offered him a scholarship. The Louisville Cardinals, Clemson Tigers, and Maryland Terrapins are other schools that offered the 2021 shooting guard a scholarship.
Dan Hurley has steadily been improving the Huskies program and will hope to soon have them back to their Big East glory. Hurley just needs to find himself a Kemba Walker or Shabazz Napier to help push them over the edge.
