The good news: Andre Drummond has decided not to return to St. Thomas More to play basketball next year. The bad news: He's not coming to UConn and instead headed to Wilbraham & Monson Academy in Massachusetts. Depending on who you ask Drummond was the either the No. 1 or No. 2 prospect in the 2012 recruiting class, but his talent was such that if he decided to make himself part of the 2011 class (which he was eligible for) he would have been equally coveted. A lot of UConn fans (read: me) held out a desperate, foolish hope that Drummond would reclassify and find himself in Storrs this year, but it was not to be.
It is still possible that the big man could head to college next year, in which case his presumed destination would be UConn, but it seems much more likely that he'll opt for the pro game and pro paycheck instead (assume the current NBA CBA and it's draft conditions hold).
