Player Bio

Andre Jamal Drummond was born in 1993 in Mount Vernon, New York, just north of the Bronx. Drummond's family moved to Middletown, Connecticut when Andre was seven years old. He attended Woodrow Wilson Middle School before starting high school at Capital Preparatory Magnet School in Hartford. During his sophomore season at Capital, he averaged 20.2 points, 16.6 rebounds, 7.2 blocks and 4.5 steals per game. Drummond then transferred to the St. Thomas More school in Oakdale, Connecticut and led the Chancellors to the 2011 Prep National Championship. He graduated that spring and was ranked by ESPN as the top college basketball prospect in the country. Andre's favorite school subject was math. As an adult, he now wears size 18 shoes. Drummond has been named an ambassador for the Special Olympics and is the Pistons' representative for SAY Detroit. As part of the NBA's Season of Giving Campaign, the big center joined with families and took them shopping during the 2017 Christmas Holidays. Follow Drummond on both Instagram and Twitter (@andredrummondd). Drummond's one year in Storrs was the end of an era for the Connecticut Huskies. It was the final year that coach Jim Calhoun patrolled the UConn sidelines and it appeared that he was not completely sure what he had in the towering Drummond. The 6-foot-10 center came off the bench for the first four games before establishing himself as a starter. He had nine double-doubles and averaged 10.0 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 2.7 blocks. In Big East play, he had six double-doubles, including 17 points and 14 rebounds in a loss to Syracuse. He had another double-double in the Big East Tournament against the Orange. Despite having a losing record in conference (8-10), the Huskies were invited to the NCAA Tournament, but Drummond fouled out after 26 minutes in the loss to Iowa State with just two points and three rebounds. It would be his last game for the Huskies because he declared for the 2012 NBA Draft afterwards. He was chosen by the Detroit Pistons in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft with the ninth overall pick.
