Kevin Ollie added some more depth to his roster over the weekend, landing a commitment from a 6-foot-7 junior college forward named Kwintin Williams.

Williams originally committed to Oregon coming out of high school but was forced into the JuCo ranks due to academic issues.

Williams has a 44-inch vertical and will provide some versatility to UConn’s front court as Ollie looks to overhaul a roster and rebuild a program that has missed two of the last three NCAA tournaments following 2014’s national title. With Jalen Adams returning and Alterique Gilbert and Terry Larrier healthy this season, the Huskies have a roster that is talented enough to get back to the Big Dance.
