Katz: How UConn landed Drummond

It required some maneuvering, but UConn was able to land No. 2 overall prospect Andre Drummond. Andy Katz explains how. Blog

Drummond confirmed an earlier report by The Hartford Courant with a posting on his Twitter account Friday that read, “It’s official I’m heading to the university of connecticut to be a husky this year! Do I hear repeat.”

A message was left with a school spokesman seeking comment.

Drummond is considered one of the top prospects in the nation. He’s ranked No. 2 in the ESPNU 100 class of 2012. Earlier this month, he said he planned to attend prep school in Massachusetts.

It’s not clear where his scholarship will come from. Connecticut has none available after losing three due to NCAA rules violations and a poor academic performance rating.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
