    Per Jeff Borzello: Former UNLV signee Christian Vital told ESPN he has committed to UConn. Chose them over Louisville and Iowa. http://es.pn/1Szgag5

    Fact remains, if you get KO alone in a room with a kid and his parent/s/ or guardian its pretty much game over. Welcome Chrisitan!!!!

    Always good to see us get a kid that we wanted and that other good programs also wanted. He knows what he is getting at UConn and it appears that he values that! Looking forward to seeing this kid in action!

    Hilarious - now their guys are scrambling to update their crystal ball picks - still has it over 50% Louisville. Oh well...KO!!

    Welcome aboard CV! As soon as he was going back for another UConn visit with his mom I knew it was a done deal, the 247 site seemed like a cool idea before we all realized they have no clue.

    They definitely botched this one - but even the Louisville guy thought he was going there and he's not the normal internet nit wit.

    Probably just a weird coincidence, but I believe our last four guard recruits (excluding Gibbs) had Louisville in their final two or three - Vital, Gilbert, Adams, Cassell.

    Well the point is to get clicks on their website, so from that perspective they definitely have a clue.

    That was a pretty good call by him and he stuck with it when most signs pointed towards Ville. Props

    BOOM. Another victory for KO. Hopefully he's not done yet, 2 more open spots to fill. Going to be a real young team next year, but I'm excited for the future.

    As I mentioned in the Vital thread. KO is undefeated going up against Pitino for guards. Everytime its us or Louisville for a guard....ours.

    Notice, he didn't tweet "Connecticut". He tweeted "New England".

    f.u. BC. There's only one big dog in New England.
