Storrs, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) _ Bret McCormick of All-Star Girls Report says that the reigning freshman of the year in Big East women’s basketball is transferring to UConn.

He tweeted Tuesday evening that Natalie Butler, a 6-foot-5 center from Georgetown, will become a Husky.

Multiple other news outlets have also reported news of Butler’s decision to transfer.

If Butler does in fact come to UConn, she would help fill a void left by graduating center Stefanie Dolson, now of the WNBA’s Washington Mystics.

Butler as a freshman averaged nearly 14 points and 13 rebounds a game in becoming the conference’s freshman of the year.

As a transfer, she would have to sit out the 2014-15 season, but would then have three years of eligibility remaining when she returned as a sophomore in 2015-16.
