Elena Delle Donne is not going to UConn after all or will be playing college basketball this year. Last Saturday, EDD announced she would not take up the UConn scholarship due to personal reasons. In a statement released Monday afternoon, Delle Donne, the Naismith National Girls High School Basketball Player of the Year, said she decided not to attend UConn because she didn’t feel equal to the challenge.

Delle Donne was rated by Scout.com as the number 1 college recruit this year. She was supposed to be a great piece for UConn’s push for a 6th National Championship.

Last news I read, she is enrolling at Delaware and will play college volleyball as a walk-on.
