As Kentucky continues to wait and see if Kaleb Tarczewski will pop by sometime this month for a visit before making a decision, Mike DeCourcy of the Sporting News says that it’s just about time for another five-star big man to make a decision of his own. For Andre Drummond, the nation’s best big man, however, the choice is between heading to prep school or directly to college as a member of the 2011 class. Drummond has toyed with the idea all summer and said in an interview several weeks ago that he was preparing himself to remain in the class of 2012. However, in the last few days, according to DeCourcy, there’s been more of a feeling that Drummond will indeed enroll in college this season. He will announce his decision tomorrow.
With that all having been said, the million dollar question remains as to just how big of a player Kentucky is with Drummond. There have been few, if any, mentions of the Cats by Drummond in the last few months, though several entities still rattle off Kentucky as one of the three major players for him. In DeCourcy’s article, he lists UConn (the presumed favorite), Pitt, Duke, Georgetown, Louisville and North Carolina as the possible options for Drummond, leaving one to assume that if he opts to enroll directly in college this month, Lexington is almost certainly not the destination.
