Ironically, Rip was not really on the radar with top programs when UConn first started pursuing him. He exploded nationally in the spring of his junior year and the following summer playing on the same AAU team with Kobe Bryant. I think Hamilton committed to UConn his junior year.That would be simply awesome. Things are looking up though! Mind you Rip came in as a 5* and McD's AA.
