UConn is not a particularly high-profile recruit in the ACC and will not be a top priority for the New England Patriots, but the Huskies have been in the mix for a number of top prospects, including three-star point guard Justin Martin.
UConn and Boston College have also been in talks with Maryland, but no formal offer has been made.
Martin is ranked No. 22 by ESPN, No. 4 in 247Sports and No. 24 by Scout.
He averaged 15.4 points and 5.9 assists for his career.
Martin will enter the 2018 NBA Draft and could become a top-10 pick.
Uconn is ranked 19th in the 247Sports Composite.
UIC coach Jeff Capel said he is interested in recruiting Martin, who is 6-foot-4, 235 pounds, but UConn has no plans to compete with the Husky program in the 2018 recruiting cycle.UConn is the only school with four full-time basketball assistants and Capel is expected to retain former coach Joe Paterno and former assistant coach Kevin Stott, who played under Paternon at Virginia.
Capel is the fifth coach in UConn history to coach the Huskers, and the first since Kevin Ollie in 2006.
Capels predecessor, Tom Crean, was fired after the 2019 season and replaced by Joe Moorhead.
