Calhoun not reconsidering UConn commitment

Connecticut-bound shooting guard Omar Calhoun told ESPNNewYork.com on Saturday that he is not reconsidering his commitment to UConn in light of Huskies' coach Jim Calhoun's medical leave of absence. The shooting guard, the No. 52 prospect according to ESPNU, is the only signed player in the Huskies' 2012 recruiting class at the moment.

Calhoun politely said no comment about all other questions regarding the Huskies.

Calhoun is out indefinitely because of back problems as he has been suffering from spinal stenosis, which has caused him pain and hampered his mobility. He will be evaluated daily and will miss at least one more game. He missed Saturday's win over Seton Hall.

Omar Calhoun is regarded as the top prospect in New York City and has led Christ the King to back-to-back CHSAA Class AA Intersectional titles. He has the Royals at 14-6 heading into their Saturday showdown against Cardinal Hayes.
