Drew enrolled at UCLA, on scholarship for 2011-12

Former North Carolina guard Larry Drew II has enrolled at UCLA and will redshirt next season, sources confirmed Monday afternoon. Drew left the Tar Heels abruptly in February amid frustrations with playing time, after his numbers dropped drastically from his sophomore season.

Drew averaged 4.4 points and 3.9 assists in 22.8 minutes per game as a junior, down from 8.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 28.8 minutes per game in 2009-10.

The Taft High product will sit out the 2011-12 season – both Lazeric Jones and Jerime Anderson will be seniors – but will be available in 2012-13, though he will be on scholarship next season.

    I haven’t seen him play but it fits well that he’ll be able to compete for the point guard position after jones and anderson graduate. At least on paper it makes sense.

    will he have 2 years of eligibility left?

  • Lifelong Bruin Fan

    He’ll be a senior in 2012-13.

    So potentially more than half our starting 5 on the 2012-12 team will be former UNC players? Hmmm…
