FRIDAY, 10:39am: Drummond made his decision official today, tweets Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports.
THURSDAY, 4:22pm: UConn and Drummond will officially announce the big man's decision on Friday, according to Andy Katz of ESPN.com.
10:17am: Andre Drummond will forgo the rest of his NCAA eligibility and enter the NBA draft, reports Kevin Duffy of the Hearst Connecticut Media Group. Drummond will become the first one-and-done player in the University of Connecticut's history.
The UConn center averaged 10.0 points and 7.6 rebounds per game in his freshman year, and is a virtual lock to be a lottery pick in June. DraftExpress.com lists Drummond as the second-best prospect behind Anthony Davis, while Chad Ford of ESPN.com ranks him fifth. Although Drummond is unquestionably an elite talent, teams at the very top of the draft may be reluctant to roll the dice on him, since he's viewed as a high-risk, high-reward selection.
Drummond joins UConn teammate Jeremy Lamb on this year's list of early entrants.
