Springs is a 6-foot-9 power forward from Brooklyn, New York. He graduated this spring from The MacDuffie School in Granby, Massachusetts.
UConn said the 17-year-old made the decision last weekend to forgo his planned postgraduate year and enroll at UConn this fall. The team will play one more season in the American Athletic Conference before returning to the Big East.
Coach Dan Hurley said Springs gives the Huskies a versatile frontcourt player with "a ton of upside."
