Derrick Jones, a 6-foot-7, 190-pound junior wing from Archbishop Carroll (Pa.), will take an unofficial to UConn on Monday, as previously reported by SNY.tv.
The visit has been postponed several times.
“We’ve been trying to visit and trying to get him up there,” We R 1 coach Terrell Myers recently told SNY.tv. “The second time Kevin Ollie had something going on with his mom and the first time Derrick missed his flight so we couldn’t get him up there. But that’s definitely a place he’s going to go visit.”
