  • The UConn men’s basketball program has received signed financial aid agreements from student-athletes Brendan Adams, Tarin Smith and Kassoum Yakwe, head coach Dan Hurley announced Thursday. All three will be eligible to join the men’s basketball team for the 2018-19 season.

    “We are thrilled to have these three guys join our program,” Hurley said. “They fill obvious needs for both the short-term and long-term progress of the program. They all have backgrounds playing in strong grassroots programs and I know they will help us not only on the court, but also with their character and work ethic, to build the type of culture we want.”

    Adams, a 6-4 guard from Hanover, Md., will be a freshman in the fall, while Smith, a 6-2 guard from Ocean Township, N.J., and Yakwe, a 6-8 forward from Bamako, Mali, will enroll at UConn as graduate transfers, each with one season of eligibility.
