Podcast: Why Drummond to UConn changes it all

If you were without power most of the weekend or just wanted to unplug, you may have missed the news: Andre Drummond re-classified himself to the 2011 class, and he'll be attending Connecticut. Like, immediately.

He'll be considered one of the best, if not the best, big players in the country. His arrival completely changes how UConn will be viewed. It goes from Big East contender to national title player with the likes of UNC, Kentucky and Ohio State.

How did this happen? Why? Should it even be allowable this late into the summer? Borzello and I talk about everything surrounding Drummond's recruitment, the type of player he is, how Calhoun's managed to pull this off and where it places UConn. There are also consequences to this move for the Huskies, so we cover that in full, too.

Podcast: Why Drummond to UConn changes it all

Interesting!  While I agree that this does make UConn a better contender with Drummond than without, were these two talking heads not part of the Wizards of Smart who missed UConn all together in the pre-season rankings last year?  Being a Husky fan, I like to hear the hype for UConn, but I know that this is WAY EARLY to be predicting sure shot contenders come tourney time next March.  Who knows, there just may be another "sleeper" team out there this year too!  GO HUSKIES!!!
