Andre Drummond wow
 
This dude looks like a lock to be the number 1 pick in 2012! Already bigger than Dwight Howard when he came out of HS and look at the athleticism and body control. If he has his head on straight this guy could be taking the nba by storm in a few years.

Guy is the next KG. Unbelievable size and skill.

Yeah, he's BIGGER than KG, already 250 lbs, and he has all the bounce and body control of a young KG. The only knock I hear on his game is his jumper is inconsistent, but basically with his size and explosiveness he could become a more fluid, more versatile version of Dwight Howard.

ESPN has him at 6'11, 275 and he runs like a deer. Physically, he reminds me a little of Wilt Chamberlain. If he hits the 7 foot mark with his type of athleticism, look out. I haven't seen a high school kid with his kind of eye popping potential since Lebron James.

Is the one inch difference between 6'11" and 7'0" really holding him back from taking off?

Looks pretty good. The one thing that really impressed me were his passing skills. He seems like he understands the game pretty well and isn't just a freak athlete playing basketball. I will say one thing, he needs to stop trying to cross people over and handle the ball so much. Stay in the paint, better things will happen there than on the perimeter.

He looks like a slow kid with that big body cause of those big legs, but his hops and moves are amazing.

I heard about this kid before, he got game for sure .. But in high school he can do all that he wants, the tallest guys on the other team that are defending him can't put pressure on his handle so he seems confortable ..
I will like to see how he can do in college.

I can almost guarantee you that with that type of size and athleticism, he would absolutely dominate in college, even as a freshman. This guy is an absolute monster. One and done for sure, if he ends up attending college at all. I've read that there's an off chance he will do a year of prep school and go straight to the NBA, but the most likely scenario is him playing for the Huskies.

I heard he has a 36 inch vertical or something thats more than Dwight howard whose is 35.5 his vertical will probably get to the 40s now that would be something never seen before a 7 footer with a 40 inch vertical. He would be staring at the rim.

If he is 275 i wonder if he could get to 300 by the time he gets to the NBA.

Can he actually do that like you can't jump from high school to the NBA is prep school not considered high school.
