UConn Will Learn Andre Drummond's Decision Wednesday Or Thursday

UConn entered the 2011-12 season with hopes of repeating as champions thanks to a strong recruiting class and several stars coming back. After an abysmal showing, the 2012-13 season outlook just keeps getting uglier for Jim Calhoun and the Huskies.

After sophomore Jeremy Lamb announced his decision to declare for the NBA Draft Monday, rumors are swirling around freshmen big man Andre Drummond and whether he will also jump ship. According to a tweet from Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com, Drummond will likely make an announcement either Wednesday or Thursday on his future.

The talented freshmen was a top 10 member of the 2016 Class nationally and averaged 10 points and a team-high 7.6 rebounds per game in 30 starts this season. Drummond also led the team with a 53.8 percent field goal percentage and 92 blocks, while playing near 30 minutes per game. Many experts are speculating that Drummond will join Lamb in leaving early for the NBA.

Junior Alex Oriakhi has already announced his intentions to transfer from UConn and will likely be allowed to play right away at his new school because of UConn's postseason ban for the 2012-13 season. Oriakhi averaged 6.7 points and 4.8 rebounds for the Huskies in 28 starts and teamed up with Drummond to form two-thirds of the Huskies front court.

With the Huskies ineligible for postseason play this upcoming season, there is some speculation that other players may also join the ranks of Lamb and Oriakhi in leaving Storrs.
