What a way to make an announcement: a Friday night at 7:30 p.m., on Twitter.

Andre Drummond, the No. 2 prospect in the class of 2012, is headed to Connecticut – in the fall.

“It’s official,” Drummond tweeted. “I’m heading to the University of Connecticut to be a Husky this year!”

The news was confirmed to CBSSports.com by a source with knowledge of the situation.

Earlier this month, Drummond made an announcement that he was doing a prep year at Wilbraham & Monson, and also narrowed his list of schools to five: Connecticut, Georgetown, Kentucky, Louisville and West Virginia.

With Connecticut out of scholarships, sources have told CBSSports.com that Drummond could become a walk-on and pay his own way this year.

He joins a 2011 recruiting class that also includes Ryan Boatright and DeAndre Daniels.

pyshie - After UNC wins the National Championship this year and we lose a ton of talent to the pros, we will still be back in the hunt in another two years.  UNC and Dook's continued excellence will vilify the ACC hoopster fan base that the ACC will ALWAYS be on top!  Assuming, of course, that Roy Williams and Coach K don't end up with the wrong tutors for their players. Smile

Now that Alex is going to be guarded by the true big men of the Big East. this opens more doors for him than anyone.  Considering Kemba didn't have to leave, wonder how nasty this team would have been if he decided he wanted to play basketball next year.  They should let rookies with college time left come back when they don't play at all.  Call it an educational thing.  What a guy can dream right?
