Drone Commits to Rice
SHAWNEETOWN -- Gallatin County senior center Andrew Drone has verbally committed to play basketball at Rice University.
Drone is the Owls' first recruit in the class of 2013 to verbally commit to the school. Rice is a member of Conference USA.
As a junior, the 6-foot-11 inch center averaged 22 points, 11 rebounds and eight blocks per game.
More than 30 schools were interested in Drone, including SIU. He says he chose Rice because they offered him a full scholarship and the chance to play immediately. Wright State was the other school to offer him a full ride.
