Ahmad Nowell, a four-star combo guard in the Class of 2024, committed to defending national champion UConn on Sunday.
Nowell is rated No. 36 overall and the No. 3 combo guard in his class by the 247Sports composite rankings. The 6-foot native of Philadelphia chose the Huskies over Kentucky, Tennessee and Georgia Tech
"I chose UConn because they checked all the boxes and had everything I wanted in a school," Nowell told 247Sports. "From their playing style, coaching style, what they like to do, relationships, players and staff, everything went together. Also, and most importantly, they're winners. I like to win so everything just clicked."
UConn is coming off its fifth national title, all of them since 1999. The Huskies, a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament, beat San Diego State 76-59 in the national championship game in April
Coach Dan Hurley and the Huskies had one prior commitment for the Class of 2024: four-star small forward Isaiah Abraham from the Washington, D.C. area
