Andrej Stojakovic’s recruitment has turned into a battle royale of heavyweight contenders, and Indiana is in the ring.
The emerging class of 2023 small forward has begun the process of sifting through his long list of suitors and now has a group of schools he plans to visit.
According to Rivals national recruiting analyst Travis Graf, Stojakovic has a visit scheduled to Stanford on June 1, and he is eyeing stops at nine other schools in the coming months.
Graf reported Stojakovic is scheduling visits to Texas, Virginia, Tennessee before July 31st, and he intends to see UCLA, USC, Kansas, and Kentucky in the fall. Moreover, he plans to visit one of Indiana and UConn before July 31, and the other in the fall.
The July 31 cutoff pertains to an NCAA rule which allows five official visits for each of a prospect’s junior and senior years of high school.
The 6-foot-7 Stojakovic has been one of the hottest class of 2023 names this spring. He’s earned at least 14 high majors offers over the last six weeks while playing for the first time on a major AAU shoe circuit.
Running with the Compton Magic on the Adidas 3SSB circuit, Stojakovic is averaging 15 points and 7 rebounds while shooting better than 39 percent from 3-point range.
He told Rivals’ Kristin Peek what factors will be the most important when it comes to evaluating schools.
“Which schools communicate with me the most, a good ratio of academics and basketball,” he said. “My ultimate goal is to go to the NBA, so a school that will prepare me well for that on and off the court, and little stuff like money management.”
Indiana offered Stojakovic in April after watching him live.
