Texas transfer Sedona Prince (6-7 FR center, Liberty Hill, TX) will take an official visit to UConn starting on Tuesday.
Next week, Auriemma and the Huskies will get the opportunity to make another impression.

Her mother, Tambra, confirmed the trip on Wednesday.
Andeija Puckett (6-2 SO forward, Griffin, GA) announced that she’s transferring from Cincinnati to Ole Miss. Oddly enough, she made her decision without visiting the school.
“I’ve never visited. I haven’t visited Ole Miss. I was supposed to visit Tuesday, but there was a change of plans. Everything was directly over the phone. There was a lot of texting and face timing. I know what Coach Yo’ expects out of me, so I won’t be blindsided by what I have to do in order to make a difference on the team,” Puckett said.
“I’m going to be on campus on the 26th, so there’s really no reason for me to take that visit now. Ole Miss is the school where I wanted to be.”
