    Class of 2024 four-star guard Ahmad Nowell has committed to UConn, he told ZAGSBLOG.

    Nowell, the 6-foot, 180-pound guard from Imhotep Institute (PA) and the Team Final AAU program, chose the Huskies over Georgia Tech, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

    “They [UConn] check all my boxes when it comes to what I want from the playing style to the player development,” he told ZAGSBLOG. “Also the mentality of the coach [Dan Hurley]. He wants to win and he strives to get better at it and so do I.”

    Nowell visited every school on his final list officially besides Kentucky.

    For Team Final this grassroots season, Nowell has helped the team to a 16-1 record while averaging 13.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists. Nowell is a coveted prospect, ranking as the No. 33 player nationally and No. 4 combo guard per 247Sports.

    “I’d say I’m an all-around player,” Nowell said to On3. “I can rebound, pass, score it. I’m an overall leader, whatever the team needs me to do in order to win. I watch a lot of different guys, the handle like Kyrie (Irving), the shooting like Damian Lillard, and the dog like Jimmy Butler. I’m a natural winner.”

    Nowell is UConn’s second commit in their class of 2024, joining four-star wing Isaiah Abraham.

    The Huskies are off to another hot start on the recruiting trail, after their 2023 class, which was ranked 6th in the nation, saw Hurley bring in one five-star and four four-stars.
