Andre Drummond skipping college?

The best big man in the 2012 class might be skipping college and heading straight to the league. Before you say, “Hey, he can’t do that!”, you should know that it is possible under the current NBA rules. Adam Zagoria points out that Drummond will be 19 years old in 2012 and he’ll be one year removed from his original graduating year of high school, 2011. Andre was held back a grade making him part of the 2012 class but he has all of his core classwork completed. So, somehow, he can return to high school and play basketball and then go pro if he wants to. Don’t worry – I don’t understand it either. Whatever happened to going to high school for four years?

Still, many around Drummond believe he’ll go to college and that his favorites right now are UConn and Kentucky. Even if Drummond wants to skip school and enter the 2012 NBA Draft, we have no idea what the rule for draft entrants will be after the new CBA.

Personally, I think he should go to Kentucky – and I’m completely unbiased.

    what’s to understand? He was held back and has all his credits. He’s 19 and is 1 year from his graduating class. Are you a complete freakin WATERHEAD or what?
