Service’s Drammeh narrows colleges to two

By KTVA Sports 7:58 AM April 20, 2015
ANCHORAGE –

Service forward Pindo Drammeh, who graduated after an impressive senior season, whittled his list of potential colleges down to two on Sunday.

The two schools Drammeh will decide between are Green River College in Aurburn, Washington, and Columbia College based out of Sonora, California.

His decision has not been a basketball-only one.

“I came to these schools mainly because they offered the prerequisites for my major, which is kinesiology, so I can run a sports therapy center someday,” he said in a phone interview with KTVA.

On Sunday morning, his mind was not made up.

“When it’s a decision that has to do with your future it’s so difficult,” he said on Twitter.

Drammeh was a dominant force inside during the 2015 high school basketball season. The senior helped lead the Cougars to the state semi-finals where they lost to the eventual champions, West. His performance placed him on the all-state first team, the all-CIC team and the all-tournament team.

At 6-foot-7, Drammeh towered over most other high school athletes in Alaska. That will not be the case at the next level.

“I see myself changing positions because I feel I’m only like a high school center at my height, obviously,” he said. “But like I think I could work it and become a small forward.”

Drammeh plans on making a decision by Thursday and announcing his decision on Friday.
