Haralson excited to become a Husky

Scottie Haralson isn't able to watch today's UConn-Indiana game. His Provine High basketball team is playing a game today at 2:30 p.m. about an hour from his Jackson, Miss. home.

But the 6-foot-4 senior shooting guard, who orally commited to UConn late Friday night, is excited at the prospect of becoming a Husky.

"They need a shooter real bad," Haralson said when reached by phone on Saturday. "They told me I could come in and play right away as a freshman."

Haralson added that he's excited to play for a "Hall of Fame coach" like Jim Calhoun.

Those who have seen Haralson play have compared him to a "poor-man's Rashad Anderson." Haralson remembers Anderson as a player and admired his ability to shoot the 3-pointer.

Haralson plans to make an official visit to UConn when his Provine High season is over.

More on Haralson later ...
