The three recruits all committed Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period. They know each other well, having played together on the gold-medal winning 3-on-3 team at the 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China in August.
Samuelson comes from Mater Dei High School in California, the same school that produced UConn senior Kalena Mosqueda-Lewis.
They will join 6-5 center Natalie Butler, who is sitting out this season after transferring from Georgtown, where she was the 2013-14 Big East Rookie of the Year.
