McDonald’s All-American  Elena DelleDonne

Elena DelleDonne added another accomplishment to her list being named to the 2008 McDonald’s All-American Game. This will be a great ending to her high school career which has seen her dominate on a national level for years now. She is the # 1 ranked player in the class of 2008 and will be taking her skill set to Connecticut next year.

Elena was also named the 2008 State Farm player of the year last week. Her game is so unique she combines size at 6’4 with a guard skill set. She is the best shooter in the class of 2008 being able to knock down shots from behind the arc with a smooth jumper. She can also go inside and dominate with her size and array of post moves along with doing a good job on the boards.

The next few years at Uconn should be some very special times for that storied program. The class that Coach Geno has coming in next year is one of the top 3 in the country.
