UConn women’s basketball is set to host the No. 1-ranked player in the class of 2024 over the weekend.
Sarah Strong, who has yet to decide on a school, is one of four recruits in the Class of 2024 to attend UConn’s First Night celebration on Friday. The event is meant to celebrate UConn’s upcoming season and the return of star guard Paige Bueckers, who sat out all of last season while recovering from an ACL injury. It is considered one of the program’s biggest recruiting events of the year.
Allie Ziebel and Morgan Cheli, who have already committed to the Huskies and are both ranked among the top 20 players in the country, will also be in attendance.
CT Insider confirmed that Strong will be in attendance after previously visiting Oregon and LSU. She’s the daughter of former Harvard basketball standout and WNBA player Allie Feaster.
A rising senior at Grace Christian High School, Strong averaged 22.6 points, 4.4 assists, 13.9 rebounds, 3.4 steals and 2.2 blocks per game as a junior. She also won back-to-back gold medals with Team USA at the 3×3 U18 World Cup. And in March, she was named Gatorade’s North Carolina Player of the Year for basketball. She was also named MVP of Eurocamp over the summer circuit, averaging 17.3 points and 6.3 rebounds.
