“James is a dynamic wing player,” Hurley said this week when Bouknight and point guard Jalen Gaffney signed with UConn. “He loves to play and is a pleasure to watch on the court. We feel that he is one of the best guard prospects in the country and we’re excited about what he can add to our program. His athleticism and playmaking ability will translate immediately in our system.” UConn remains involved for several frontcourt players in 2019, including Akok Akok, who played at the Showcase Friday and Saturday, Kofi Cockburn, Qudus Wahab and Precious Achiuwa.
