STORRS, Conn. -- Connecticut has added a 19-year-old swingman from Germany, a day after announcing that sophomore forward Ater Majok withdrew from school.

Niels Giffey will take Majok's spot on the roster, giving the Huskies six freshmen for the upcoming season.

The 6-foot-7 Giffey joins guards Shabazz Napier and Jeremy Lamb, along with forwards Roscoe Smith, Tyler Olander and Michael Bradley as newcomers to the Huskies.
