Notre Dame had landed a transfer big man as former UConn forward Juwan Durham made his commitment to the Fighting Irish official on Saturday morning.

The 6-foot-11 Durham is a former four-star recruit who just finished his freshman season with the Huskies. Durham never established consistent minutes as he averaged 1.6 points and 1.5 rebounds per game. After missing back-to-back seasons with a torn ACL in both of his knees, it was just a positive sign that Durham was able to make it through his freshman season without major injury issues.

Durham will now get a year to sit out and recover even more as he’ll have three years of eligibility left at Notre Dame. It’ll be intriguing to see if Durham can ever regain the form that made him a five-star prospect at one point in high school, but he’ll have to stay healthy.
