Jim Calhoun was the undeniable face of Connecticut basketball. As his star rose, so did the national championship banners in Storrs, Conn. For years, the UConn coach strolled into high school gyms not needing an introduction nor a shirt with the Huskies' logo.

Now, it appears there will be a new face at UConn. And with the change comes amendments on the recruiting front as well.

Evan Habeeb/US PRESSWIREWith Jim Calhoun expected to announce his retirement at a press conference Thursday, Kevin Ollie would become the new face of UConn recruiting.
Over the next few days, the one consistent theme you’ll hear coming out of Connecticut is class. Reported new coach Kevin Ollie was a blue-collar player who carved out a career in the NBA by being a likeable, workmanlike professional with integrity.
