Class of 2023 wing Andrej Stojakovic’s recruitment has exploded in 2022, but the incoming senior is ready to start focusing on a smaller pool of suitors.
In a video from the weekend posted on CBS Sports, Stojakovic said he is in the process of narrowing things down, and multiple aspects of the interview make it seem as though Indiana’s odds may be long.
“I will be narrowing my list in the next couple of weeks, and then looking to make a decision well before the first (November) signing period,” Stojakovic said.
So far Stojakovic has taken visits to Stanford and UCLA. After originally announcing plans to get to as many as five schools before the end of July, he said he’s not planning to take any more official visits until the fall but does plan to take an unofficial to St. Mary’s, which is nearby his hometown of Sacramento.
A scheduled visit to Bloomington continues to be the milestone to watch for when it comes to assessing whether Stojakovic is giving IU a serious look.
While he has previously indicated he would take a trip to Indiana either in the summer or fall, in the interview Stojakovic only mentioned Kentucky, Michigan and UConn as schools he planned to get to in the fall.
The 6-foot-7 Stojakovic is the son of long-time NBA player Peja, who has a preference for his son to stay closer to home.
“He wants me to stay on the West Coast, but he’s also open to me going on the East Coast,” Stojakovic said.
Stojakovic is the No. 37 player nationally in the class of 2023 according to the 247Sports Composite. He is one of three primary wing shooters IU is focusing on in the class, along with Jamie Kaiser and T.J. Power.
