VCU transfer Terry Larrier has committed to play for UConn and coach Kevin Ollie per scout.com's Evan Daniels.
The reason is Kevin Ollie:
“My relationship with Kevin Ollie,” Larrier told Scout. “He recruited me in high school and our relationship is real good.”Larrier, 6-foot-7 forward, chose UConn over Maryland. Larrier had left VCU after Shaka Smart too the head coaching job at Texas. As a freshman, Larrier averaged 6.6 points in 18.5 minutes per game.
“He’s just a good dude,” he added. “He’s a stand up dude. We talk all the time. I think he’s done a gooo job with the UConn program. I’m excited to go to UConn.”
UConn is also bringing in a pair of fifth-year transfers this season in Sterling Gibbs and Shonn Miller.
Gibbs and Miller are eligible immediately as college graduates going into a Masters program. Larrier wil have to sit out a year and have three years of eligibility remaining.
