UConn nabs five-star PG Alterique Gilbert

Alterique Gilbert has something in common with Kemba Walker, Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright.

He's going to be UConn's next starting point guard.

"I love the relationship me and coach (Kevin) Ollie have, and my mom as well," Gilbert told ESPN.com. "My reasoning for the commitment is me being comfortable with the whole situation. I just decided to take the best thing for me and my family. We just came to a conclusion together that it would be the best fit for me."

Gilbert is the No. 5 point guard in the 2016 class and No. 23 overall player in the ESPN 100.
