Choices but No Decision

After narrowing his college choices down to five schools in early October, Morgan Park's Craig Drummond is still at five schools but continues to prepare himself for the next level.

MADISON - Senior defensive end and Chicago native Craig Drummond has narrowed his choices for schools from over 20-plus offers down to five. Although Drummond hasn't made up his mind he does want to commit by December. Drummond, a four-star prospect that is the 13th-ranked defensive end in the country, has been keeping his options open and making sure the right decision is made.

"I have narrowed my choices down to LSU, Tennessee, Miami, Illinois, and Wisconsin" said Drummond.

Drummond hasn't decided out of the five that he likes the most. Drummond feels that they all bring something unique and that's why the decision is so hard to make. The Badgers have been in contact with him and are trying to get him to come to Camp Randall within the next couple of weeks.

As a junior at Morgan Park high school, Drummond's statistics speak for the type of player he is by having 67 tackles, 18 sacks, and 2 fumble recoveries. To get himself ready for the next level has been keeping himself active.

"I have been working out with certain players to be that much more prepared for the next level," said Drummond.

It's been a struggle for Drummond so far this year, as a high ankle sprain suffered in practice before his season opener and as kept him sidelined this entire season. Drummond is hoping to play next week but it's been frustrating sitting and waiting.

"It's been hard watching my team and I can't compete with them," said Drummond, who's team is 4-3 this season. "I know I can't play but I am really anxious to get healthy."

To get a high caliber player like Drummond he has certain criteria that he would like to have a school promise him will happen.

"I would like the attention to be on team and have the coaching staff give the players the abilities to succeed," said Drummond.

Drummond feels that his abilities that he would be a positive asset to a team like Wisconsin. Drummond considers himself the type of player on the field as a prominent pass rusher and run stopper. He puts out 110 percent on every play. When he's in pursuit of a tackle or a sack, he goes for the ball hard making sure he always tries to make a play.

Off the field Drummond feels that his leadership at Morgan Park can carry over to the college level and be a vocal leader. Drummond would be a helpful upgrade for the Badgers and can make an impact to help them out next year.
