Top Recruit Andre Drummond Picks UConn

After initially deciding to forgo his year in college before jumping to the NBA Draft by attending prep school for a year, Andre Drummond, one of the top recruits in the country has decided to play for Jim Calhoun and the UConn Huskies.

As reported by our friends at The UConn Blog, it's not clear exactly how the Huskies will squeeze him onto their roster (they are already at the scholarship limit), but it seems certain that Calhoun will find a way to squeeze him in.

The 6'10" Massachusetts native is widely considered one of the top three prospects in the country and had offers from just about every school under the sun including Kentucky, Kansas, and Georgetown. 

His addition to the team would theoretically cause some shuffling among the starting five for the Huskies and move them to a more tradition lineup with Drummond at center.  Alex Oriakhi would likely slide over to the power forward spot and and Roscoe Smith would move back to his natural small forward position.
