A few hours after UConn sophomore forward Jeremy Lamb announced he was going to the NBA, freshman teammate Andre Drummond said he was still not close to making a decision his future.
“Nope,” Drummond said when asked if he was close to deciding about staying with the Huskies or going pro.
“I’m here now, that’s all that matters,” he said Tuesday around 5 p.m. as he walked from Gampel Pavilion. “I’m working on my game. Right now I’m heading to class.”
Drummond is projected by most exports to be a top-10 pick if he were to chose to leave. He and his family have been doing their homework and have spoken several times with coach Jim Calhoun. He has until April 29 to make his final decision.
