Andre Drummond

Name: Andre Drummond

Overall Rank: #3

Position (Rank): Center (#2)

College: Connecticut

High School: St. Thomas More (Connecticut)

Height: 6’10

Weight: 275

Evaluation: Drummond has an unbelievable combination of size, athleticism and skill that rarely occurs and can be compared to Amar’e Stoudemire. He has the low-post game and rebounding ability to be an elite big-man but also has the ball-handling, quickness and athleticism to excel on the perimeter. He is able to shoot the short jumper or drive the ball and is an amazing finisher given he is close to seven feet tall and a great athlete. Drummond is also an excellent offensive rebounder and shot-blocker and is a good passer although he is usually able to score even when facing double-teams. Drummond doesn’t have any glaring weaknesses but he does need to be more consistent and not drift out to the perimeter too often. He will be a program-changing player in college and will be a very good NBA player barring an unforeseeable event.
