I guess andrew B(preNBA announcement)) might be on the list of CV or Rudy
I think Deng came in with as much, if not more, hype.
True but the proclamation that he was our best player on national TV set the stage for a lot of hype.Every program in the country knows about Drummond. There's a thread are practically every major board about him committing to UConn and what it means to the MCBB landscape.
This was not even remotely the case with Deng.
Drummond is the highest rated player we've ever had. Add to it that he's from CT and people have been drooling over him for 3-4 years, and he's easily our most "hyped" recruit ever. Unfortunately for our fan base, that will prb mean 20-12-5 blocks or bust.
i can see him averaging 15-10-3 similar to greg odens freshmen year unless he goes crazy and gets all kevin durant/micheal beasley on us. either way i wouldnt complain. only way id complain is if he fab melo`d his freshmen season lol!
couldn't agree more. Deng was nowhere near the player Drummond is. and he was nowhere near the #1 ranking when he came to UCONN.We can settle this easily - Drummond is the most hyped, Deng was the most overhyped.
