Wish I could post link here, but I am old and a dope when it comes to technical things. But Rivals updated there 2022 ranking and Donovan Clingan is ranked #47. Highest newcomer to top 100.

I think he will rise in rankings, so I hope we get a commitment as soon as possible.

Go Huskies !!!!

PS. If anyone can find link and post it, it will be an interesting read to fellow boneyarders

“Big man Donovan Clingan from Connecticut looks like a potential monster in the paint. Having just turned 16, he’s a seven-footer with toughness and skill who put up huge numbers as a high school sophomore. Boston College, Georgetown, Iowa, Providence, Syracuse, UConn and UMass have all offered already and I predict there will be a true feeding frenzy once coaches get to know about him nationally.”

Congrats Donovan! Sky is the limit at his size. And a true freshman at that! A lot kids in 2022 are a year older than him. I honestly thonk he could ene up a consensus 5* if he keeps improving and has a solid strength and conditioning regimen.

Love DCling but Roddy Gayle needs to be our first call on the 15th. He’s the type of player that leads you to a national championship.

Not a ton of NJ NY or other northeast talent in this class yet. Seems like those 2 would be on our list. Kyle cuffe too

I can't remembher who else we've been associated with yet.

Was curious to see where he’d initially get ranked, top 50 is awesome. Seems like the type of prospect that could jump in the rankings as wel by the time he’s done, so who knows, maybe he will be a 5 star when it’s all said and done. Whose the last home grown CT five star player? Has there been any of late that came up through the public schools like he has and didn’t just transfer/prep from another state? Only guys who come to mind are Drummond and Dunn.

that would make for 2 years in a row so hopefully this doesnt become a trend. l think all but 3 of hurley's 20+ offers for 2021 have been to guys in the northeast (New England, Tri State, PA and DMV)

You’re forgetting about the face of Roselle Catholic, Hurley guard prototype Cory Floyd Jr who debuted at #80. He’s a HUGE target for us along with DCling and Gayle.

I can see your thinking but keeping a local talent like Donovan Clingan at State U would be amazing for this program on so many levels.
Agreed, and that is why I'm so grateful we have a staff in place that knows what they are doing. They have shown they can make big men better. There are other big men in the program that will make one compete every practice. Many local games for the family. UConn checks the boxes for this player. The definition of a win-win, imo.

Throw in the fact that we need to send a message that we've fenced in our backyard and that's all you need to know.

Why would he not transfer? Im sure one of those big time schools in Florida (Monteverde or IMG) would love to have him and he would devolop into a better player. Heck even playing for a Brewster or Putnam would be much better than playing at Bristol central

I haven't seen him in person yet, but how can Kyle Filipowski not be in the top 150? He sure looks good to me from the tapes I've seen.

He’s an awesome kid and as long as UConn fans show him nothing but love he’s going to become an all time CT home legend. Let’s just make sure posters don’t make Danny’s job any harder than it already is. If he ends up at Syracuse it might literally break my heart.
