GW transfer Lasan Kromah heads to UConn, can play right away

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Connecticut should have one of the best perimeter groups in the country next season, and the Huskies added another weapon on Tuesday.

George Washington transfer Lasan Kromah is headed to Storrs, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com. Kromah played for current UConn assistant Karl Hobbs for two seasons at GW, although he missed his sophomore campaign with a foot sprain. Hobbs was the head coach of the Colonials from 2001-2011.

Kromah, a 6-foot-5 guard, will be eligible immediately after graduating from GW. He averaged 10.1 points and 3.7 rebounds last season for the Colonials.

After being ineligible for the NCAA tournament last season, Connecticut should be a borderline top-25 team. The Huskies return guards Shabazz Napier, Ryan Boatright and Omar Calhoun on the perimeter, and forward DeAndre Daniels seems primed for a big year up front. Kromah provides another weapon off the bench.
