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.

Four of the 5 schools remaining on his radar are Big East Conference schools.  And the other is a SEC school.  The ACC slowly but surely slips further and further away from the throne they used to shove in everyones face.

I think that immediately propels UConn into the upper echelon this season in terms of talent, right there with UNC, UK, and OSU. As well as probably into the final four based on talent.

Well Friday is pay day you know.  In all seriousness, I hope the kid did get recruited clean and I think UConn got a hell of a basketball player.  I never thought Louisville would get him anyway but at least we will see what he is all about in the Big East.

Is Calhoun still holding out for more money?  There should be some left over after they pay Drummond.

No. Calhoun held out and held the University hostage until they fired the AD. With the AD gone, Calhoun should be announcing his return any day now.
