Drummond to join Connecticut's 2011 class

After announcing that he would attend Wilbraham & Monson Academy a few weeks ago, Andre Drummond has instead opted to commit to Connecticut and join their 2011 recruiting class.

In a sudden change of plans, Andre Drummond is headed to Connecticut.

Initially the plan was for Drummond to do a post-graduate year at Wilbraham (Mass.) Wilbraham & Monson Academy. On Friday that plan was scrapped.

Drummond, the nation's top big man prospect, announced via Twitter that he has opted to skip his post-graduate year and join the Huskies 2011 recruiting class.

"It's official I'm heading to the university of connecticut to be a husky this year," Drummond tweeted.

A source close to the situation also confirmed the news. Drummond had recently narrowed his list of schools down to Connecticut, Louisville, Kentucky, West Virginia and Georgetown.

Drummond joins a 2011 class that also consisted of Ryan Boatright and highly regarded wing prospect DeAndre Daniels.

Drummond was ranked No. 2 overall in the 2012 class.
