2014 recruit Sierra Calhoun narrows list to Connecticut, Duke, Notre Dame

UConn might have the advantage in signing 2014 recruit Sierra Calhoun, but Geno Auriemma is way beyond needing advantages.

USA TODAY Sports

The class of 2014 boasts many top players, but probably none of whom will have a bigger impact in college than Christ The King's Sierra Calhoun. The 6-0 forward is a natural three with a great shooting touch from the outside and a strong interior game.

Name sound familiar? It should. Her brother Omar just completed his freshman season at UConn and is the all-time leading scorer in Christ The King history.

Does that give UConn an advantage? Probably, but Geno Auriemma is way beyond needing advantages. And he is quite familiar with Christ The King as his top point guard ever, Sue Bird, is a graduate.

Reportedly Calhoun has cut her list to UConn, Notre Dame and Duke after eliminating Rutgers and St. John's.

UConn and Duke recruit nationally and Notre Dame has been known more for midwestern players, but their recent Final Four success has opened broader horizons for Muffet McGraw.

Where do we see Calhoun ending up when all is said and done? The same place as her brother. That is the place in Storrs, Connecticut where she has the best chance of winning National Championships and getting tutored by one of the best in the business in Chris Dailey.
