Philip Nolan (Milwaukee, Wisc./Riverside) is about as strong a pickup for the Connecticut Huskies as they could get on May 3. The power forward with a face-up game recently visited St. John’s and had USC, Marquette and Missouri bearing down on him.
Nolan missed a substantial part of his senior season and dipped off the radar because he transferred from Vincent to Riverside, but he's a nice left-handed athlete with shot-making ability.
And the Huskies aren’t done. They’re turning over junior college rocks for another forward. Nolan’s in good shape academically and tweeted out his decision Thursday afternoon.
