Lone Walker

UConn received a signed letter-of-intent today from Kemba Walker. And that's it. The university said that is the only letter issued, and received, by the men's basketball program for this signing period.

That means that Nate Miles will apparently not be at UConn this winter.

Walker, of course, is a 6-foot-1, 175 pound point guard from Rice H.C. in The Bronx who has been making his way up the national rankings with his play over the past few months.

“We are very excited about Kemba signing a letter of intent to come to UConn," coach Jim Calhoun said in a statement. "He comes from such a great high school program led by legendary coach Mo Hicks, a program that has produced so many super players through the years. Kemba is a young man who knows about winning and performing at the highest scholastic level possible. He has had tremendous experiences with his Gauchos AAU team as well, helping them to win five national tournament championships, and showing us what we have to look forward to at UConn. Kemba has great character, charisma and leadership qualities to go along with an infectious personality that will be of outstanding benefit to our program and to the entire University.”
