Recruiting update

Really not a whole lot of news here, but:

UConn is still in the running for Alabama shooting guard Trevor Lacey, the #7 rated shooting guard and #34 overall rated player.  It’s rumored that Lacey will announce on 4/22.  The Huskies are competing with the like of Kentucky, Alabama, Auburn and Kansas.  Lacey seems to be only Top 100 player that has UConn on his list.

There are continuing rumors that #1 2012 recruit Andre Drummond will be forced to reclassify in the Class of 2011.  I think I read these same rumors last year, and it’s not clear there’s anything behind them.  The last that I read about Drummond, he was still adamant that he was going to stay another year at St. Thomas More.  From UConn’s perspective, it would probably help if he came out this year — he’d be choosing at a time when UConn is red-hot; I’ll guarantee that Jim Calhoun would stick around to coach him; and UConn could really use him next year.

Imagine a starting lineup of:

C Andre Drummond

PF Alex Oriakhi

SF Roscoe Smith/Jamal Coombs-McDaniel/Niels Giffey

SG Jeremy Lamb

PG Shabazz Napier/Ryan Boatrights
