  • Drummond Headlines Primetime Shootout

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Eight years ago, LeBron James wowed crowds at the PrimeTime Shootout in New Jersey.

    This year Andre Drummond will headline a parade of uncommitted and committed stars when the three-day event comes to Kean University Friday-Sunday.

    As we reported here last month, seven schools are in the hunt for the 6-foot-10, 260-pound Drummond of St. Thomas More (Conn.).

    Louisville, Kentucky, West Virginia, Connecticut, Pitt, North Carolina and Georgetown,” head coach Jere Quinn said. “No one else is even talking to him.”

    Drummond will go head-to-head with Kentucky signee Michael Gilchrist and St. Patrick, the No. 1 team in the country, on Sunday at 4:30.

    Among the other uncommitted players expected are Kyle Anderson of St. Anthony; Austin Colbert and Dakari Johnson of St.  Patrick; Isaiah Whitehead of Lincoln; and Lekan Ajayi of Quality Education (N.C.).

    Several future Big East players are expected, including St. John’s signees Amir Garrett (Findlay Prep), Sir’Dominic Pointer (Quality Education) and Dwight Meikle (Quality Education); Villanova commit Tyrone Johnson (Montrose Christian); and Rutgers-bound Myles Mack (St. Anthony).

    Ohio State commit LaQuinton Ross of Life Center Academy and Texas-bound Myck Kabongo of Findlay are also on the docket.
