Mysterious Andre Drummond lists UK among five choices

Update: Mike DeCourcy thinks Drummond is making a bad choice.

Andre Drummond said today that he will go to prep school and stay in the Class of 2012.

He also told ESPN that Kentucky was one of his possible destinations.


Andre Drummond, the No. 2 overall player in the 2012 class, has been quiet about his recruitment, which has led to countless speculation. On Wednesday, he listed in-state Connecticut, Kentucky, Louisville, Georgetown and West Virginia as his possible landing spots.

“I have a good relationship with all of those coaching staffs,” said Drummond. “They all have a chance to compete for a national championship, and they prepare their players well for the next level.”

The 6-foot-11 Drummond has been so quiet about his recruitment that it was difficult to know where or if the Cats fit into his mix. The fact that he named but five schools appears to indicate that Connecticut native has given it a lot more thought than he has revealed to this point.
