Ryan Boatright is off the board and ready to sign. He made a commitment on Monday.

It didn't take Ryan Boatright long to come up with a decision.

Just a few weeks ago the talented guard out of Aurora (Ill.) East gave West Virginia a verbal commitment. Two days later he reopened his recruitment to Connecticut and UNLV.

On Monday after returning from an official visit to UNLV, Boatright gave Jim Calhoun and his staff at UConn a verbal pledge.

"I just spoke to him and his mom and that's where he's going to go," Boatright's travel team coach Reggie Rose told "He's going Uconn."

According to Rose, Boatright like Calhoun's approach and how he laid out his plan for him.

"[Ryan] said it was more that he felt a connection with him and coach Calhoun," Rose said.

"When he came to it he said coach Calhoun laid everything down to him about the possibility about probation and Ryan didn't think he sugarcoated anything. He just felt comfortable."

Connecticut assistant coach Andre LaFleur was the point man on Boatright's recruitment. He is ranked No. 85 overall in the class of 2011 and is a four-star prospect.

Boatright, a 5-foot-10, 150-pound lead guard, is Connecticut's first commitment of the 2011 recruiting class.
