UConn Could Have Recruited Caitlin Clark But Didn’t Even Try

All women’s college basketball superstar Caitlin Clark wanted to do was go to UConn.

Clark was desperate to be recruited to the University of Connecticut during her time at Dowling Catholic High School in Iowa, but she recently revealed that no one even gave her a look in.

“Honestly, it was more I wanted them to recruit me to say I got recruited,” Clark told ESPN. “I loved UConn. I think they’re the coolest place on earth, and I wanted to say I got recruited by them. They called my AAU coach a few times, but they never talked to my family and never talked to me.

“Clark’s coach at Dowling Catholic High School, Kristin Meyer, said that while some of the top schools in the country flooded into open gyms to see Clark play, there was one notable absence. “Geno never came,” Meyer told ESPN.

Now, Clark’s team Iowa stands in the way of Geno Auriemma’s Huskies, who are looking for their first national championship appearance since the 2021 season after defeating number one seed USC on Monday night.

Clark had her own baller performance on Monday against LSU, where she recorded a monster 41 points, seven rebounds and 12 assists

Auriemma was asked about Clark and was adamant that he and the NCAA’s all-time leader scorer have no beef to settle.

“I hope that Caitlin Clark had a personal agenda against LSU,” Auriemma said, referencing the rematch of last season’s national title game between the Hawkeyes and the Tigers. “And I know there’s nothing personal between me and her, so I don’t need to be seeing her drop 50 on us next weekend. I love her. I think she’s the best player…forget I ever said Paige [Bueckers] is the best player in the country. I think [Clark]’s the best player of all time.”
