UNION, N.J. -- St. Thomas More coach Jere Quinn says Andre Drummond, the No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2012, will definitely remain at the Connecticut school through the 2011-12 season and will begin to focus on his list this spring.

"We'll sit down with some people in the spring," Quinn said Sunday at the PrimeTime Shootout at Kean University before Drummond scored 17 points in a 73-61 loss to St. Patrick. "We've told everybody we'll talk to people in the spring."

Quinn previously said the 6-foot-10 Middletown, Conn., native was being most heavily courted by Louisville, Kentucky, West Virginia, UConn, Pittsburgh, North Carolina and Georgetown.
