Andre Drummond leaning towards staying at Uconn next season

UConn star freshman Andre Drummond declared after Saturday’s loss to Rutgers that he would return for his sophomore season.

“As of right now, I know I’ll be back,” he said. “That’s all I could tell you, I’ll be back.”

Drummond is projected as a top-5 pick in the next draft.

“Playing under Jim Calhoun’s wing, it’s going to be great,” Drummond said. “I’m trying to be here just to be a great basketball player and get better as a person and he’s the guy to do it.”

Mitch Kupchak, general manager of the Lakers, and Rich Cho, general manager of the Bobcats, were among the eight NBA executives on hand to witness Drummond’s 10 point, 12 rebound performance against Rutgers.

"as of right now"

i don't think he'll be ready for the NBA come next year, but he's a top 2 or 3 pick regardless. from a basketball POV he'd do well to stay, but there's no way he passes up the cheese.

Well he is projected to be top 3, and there isn't going to be a lockout this season. If he stays he'll slowly develop into a more rounded player. But is this the same guy who said he was going to stay an extra year at highschool, then declared for UCONN later on?

If I had a $1 for every time a college star said this during the season and then left for the NBA draft I would have a lot more $$$ in my life.
