Drummond makes move, lists five schools

Andre Drummond, Scout.com's No. 2 overall prospect, announced that he would transfer high schools, plus he named his top five schools

Andre Drummond announced his new move and came out with a list of schools on Wednesday.

After speculation the past few weeks on whether the nation's top post prospect would return to Oakdale (Conn.) St. Thomas More, Drummond announced that he will transfer.

Drummond, a 6-foot-10, 235-pound center, has plans to transfer to Wilbraham (Mass.) Wilbraham & Monson Academy for his senior season, according to a press release that Scout.com received.

"My plans for the immediate future are to continue to focus on academics and basketball, and to prepare myself for the future rigors I will be facing on the court and in life," Drummond said. "My decision beyond this coming year will not be made before next spring. Right now I am looking forward to getting to WMA, meeting my teammates and fellow students, and focusing on both academics and basketball."

AAU teammate and close friend Kris Dunn will also make the move over to Wilbraham & Monson Academy. The two make up one of the best guard/post combo's in the country.

Also in the press release, Drummond listed five schools – Connecticut, Georgetown, Kentucky, Louisville and West Virginia - that he will consider if he opts to go the college route next year.

"Drummond said today that he continues to contemplate his plans for after the 2011-12 year at WMA – include college or potentially the 2012 NBA Draft - and will ultimately make the decision that is the best fit for him and his family," the release read.

Drummond is currently rated No. 2 overall and is the No. 1 ranked center in the country.
