Ali led his Sagemont High (Weston, Fla.) team to a 33-0 record as a junior this past season. Ali's a -foot-4 180-pound shooting guard prospect. The Huskies are coming off a national title, Kevin Ollie signed a contract extension, so the de-commitment is perplexing, but he did say the Huskies will remain in consideration.
The Huskies do have a commitment from Georgia shooting guard Williams Jackson for 2015.
UConn will lose Ryan Boatright, but have plenty of guard and wing types in reserve for the future with Rodney Purvis, Terrence Samuel, Sam Cassell Jr., Omar Calhoun, Jackson and even wing Daniel Hamilton.
