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.
