Sacred Heart sophomore guard Cane Broome announced last week he is transferring with several schools as options, but the destination is still unknown. According to David Borges with the New Haven (Conn.) Register, Michigan is among one of teams that has shown an interest.
Hearing #UConn hasn't inquired about Cane Broom yet. Michigan, Cincinnati, PC among those that have.

Broome is a 6-foot guard that averaged 23.1 points and 4.9 rebounds this past season. As a freshman, he earned all-Northeast Conference rookie honors.
With several schools interested, including Michigan, he will evaluate those to decide which to visit. Reports are he will visit Creighton and Providence soon. Being an East Hartford native, he grew up as a UConn fan, but the Huskies haven’t called yet, so it may not be an option. His coach, Anthony Latina, is actually helping Broome out in this situation because he knows what kind of kid and player he is. Latina said, “He’s a very talented kid, he’s got plenty of good options. Right now, he’s in the evaluating phase seeing who’s interested, which schools.”
He would have to sit out next season due to the transfer rules eligible for the 2017-2018 season.
