2018 Drue Drinnon Targeting October Decision

Drue Drinnon October

Drue Drinnon, the 6-foot point guard from the University (FL) School, told D1VISION on Saturday that he will “most likely” make his college decision in October.

“I’m making my decision sometime before the first signing period,” said Drinnon via text. “Most likely around October but I’m not sure yet. It’s going to be before the first live period for sure.”

Drinnon, who holds around 11 offers, named Georgia, Wake Forest, South Florida, and Florida Gulf Coast as the schools recruiting him the hardest. He broke down each school for D1VISION:

Georgia: “They have been recruiting me since I was in 8th grade, so I have a great relationship with the whole staff. I like the way Coach [Mark] Fox let JJ Frazier play through his system and I think that I could come in and take that role.”

Wake Forest: “They have been recruiting me since my sophomore summer. I have a great relationship with coach [Danny] Manning and coach [Steve] Woodbury.”

South Florida: “They just started recruiting me. The new head coach, Brian Gregory offered me at Georgia Tech and recruited me hard there, so I have a great relationship with him. Also, the assistant coach [Chad] Dollar was recruiting me at Auburn, so I have a great relationship with them. I know they are pretty much a brand new program and coach Gregory is looking for a point guard. That would be a great fit and situation for me.”

FGCU: “They just started recruiting me last week after one game they saw me play. Coach [Tom] Abatemarco is recruiting me from there. He sounds like a great and energetic coach and it would be a great situation because they will be losing one of their great guards.”

Last year at Pebblebrook (GA) High School, Drinnon starred alongside Alabama commit and McDonald’s All-American Collin Sexton which helped him develop as a player.

“Playing with [Collin] was sort of a challenge because I’m a ball dominant point guard but it taught me how to play with another top point guard and also how to play without the ball,” said Drinnon. “If anything, it got me more ready to go to college and play with any guard they already have.”

Earlier this month, Drinnon announced that he would be transferring from Pebblebrook to the University (FL) School, to play alongside 2019 five-star recruits Vernon Carey and Balsa Koprivica.

“I’ll handle the change very well,” said Drinnon. ” I know that they have Vernon Carey there and he needs a point guard so that’s the perfect situation for me.”

Playing on the Nike EYBL circuit with Southern Stampede, Drinnon averaged 13.4 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 0.9 steals per game, through eight games with the team. After finishing with a 5-11 record, Southern Stampede missed out on Peach Jam.
