#AskCoachB: UConn's run helps recruiting

April, 7, 2014
Want to ask ESPN RecruitingNation national recruiting director Paul Biancardi a question about basketball recruiting? Tweet it to @PaulBiancardi using the hashtag #AskCoachB.

Now that we have reached in the championship game, I would definitely say Connecticut. When Kevin Ollie took over this program on a full-time basis, there was a bit of uncertainty about him as a coach and as a recruiter because he was new to both fields. Anytime you have on-the-court success it opens doors for the next line of recruits. They now consider you and your program and will listen to you. This magical run for Ollie solidifies to the public and -- more importantly -- to the UConn program that he and his staff should get some nice residual benefits from future recruiting classes.
