STORRS, CONN. (AP) - Andre Drummond, a 6-foot-11 center from Middletown, Conn., who was expected to attend prep school this year, has instead said he will play basketball for defending national-champion Connecticut.

Drummond confirmed an earlier report by The Hartford Courant with a posting on his Twitter account Friday that read, “It’s official I’m heading to the university of connecticut to be a husky this year! Do I hear repeat.”

A message was left with a school spokesman seeking comment.

Drummond is considered one of the top prospects in the nation. Earlier this month, he said he planned to attend prep school in Massachusetts.

It’s not clear where his scholarship will come from. Connecticut has none available after losing three due to NCAA rules violations and a poor academic performance rating.
