Steven Enoch,who told SNY.tv that he grew up in Norwalk, CT as a UConn fan, has set an official visit to the school for the weekend of Sept. 12, his AAU coach confirmed to SNY.tv.
He will also take an official to Rhode Island the weekend of Sept. 5.
“Growing up I’ve always wanted to play at UConn and my family wanted me to,” the 6-foot-10 Enoch told SNY.tv at the Reebok Classic Breakout. “And they’ve all been fans of UConn. Now that I have [a scholarship offer] I gotta take it slow because I really have to study their program.”
At the recent Big Strick Classic in New York, he called UConn coach Kevin Ollie “a great coach” and said he enjoyed a recent unofficial visit there.
“It was nice,” he said. “When you get to the campus it looks like a whole other town, it was really nice.”
Since the visit, he said “They are really working hard for me. I just hope for the best for my future.”
In addition to UConn and Rhody, Enoch also listed Oregon, Memphis, Virginia and VCU, among others.
He visited VCU unofficially on Monday.
“I might be deciding really soon,” he said. “I don’t know when, it’s just a matter of really wanting to go somewhere.”
