Stojakovic talks finalists

In a previous interview with On3, Stojakovic broke down each program involved in his recruitment.

Texas: “Coach (Chris) Beard and Coach (Rodney) Terry have been recruiting me extremely hard and have made it clear that I am their top priority.”

Stanford: “With Stanford, it’s plan A and a plan A. They have the biggest second plan of success after basketball.”

UCLA: “It has so much tradition within and winning is ingrained into the players and staff. That’s why they are who they are.”

Oregon: “Coach (Dana) Altman and Coach (Kevin) McKenna have been recruiting me for quite a bit and we just connected on the home visit.”

In a previous interview with On3, Stojakovic discussed what he’s looking for in a program.

“I will be looking for a healthy environment to help me grow as a player and a person,” Stojakovic said. “Most of my family is overseas and would love to come to watch me play. I want to go somewhere that would be easy for my family to get to. A good ratio of academics and basketball. My goal is to make the NBA, so I want to look heavily at the school that can best help me get there.”

Commitment timeline?

Stojakovic says he is aiming for an October 31st commitment date, however, nothing is set in stone.

Update: Stojakovic will not be committing on October 31st, but plans to announce sometime later in the week.

Scouting Summary

Andrej Stojakovic has a lot of tools. It all starts with his scoring. He is comfortable with the one and two dribble pull-up and the catch and shoot three. His confidence has grown the most over the last 12 months. He is playing with a swagger about him. The shooting guard will need to continue gaining strength and tightening up everything, the handle, footwork, etc. He is the son of NBA great Peja Stojakovic. He is confident in his ability, he moves well, and he can score the ball at a high clip. – On3’s Jamie Shaw, National Recruiting Analyst
