Ollie to visit Huskies' top target Monday 

September, 14, 2012
The Connecticut Huskies have had quite the week. The retirement of an icon in Jim Calhoun and installation of a former player in Kevin Ollie is a lot to digest. Regardless, the Huskies made sure they connected with a prime target: ESPN 100 shooting guard Xavier Rathan-Mayes (Toronto, Canada/Huntington Prep).

“Coach Ollie was supposed to come down to see me [on Wednesday],” said Rathan-Mayes, who is ranked No. 23 overall in the 2013 class. “He had called me and said coach Calhoun was going to make the announcement [Thursday] but it came out [Wednesday].”

The native of Canada would like to make his decision by the middle of October. In a week, he’ll have dates for his official visits and Connecticut, Florida State, Baylor and Illinois are on the list.
