Jack PIlgrimby:Jack Pilgrim04/15/24

Dreams of Zvonimir Ivisic dominating as a sophomore in Mark Pope’s offense at Kentucky are over.

The 7-2 forward out of Croatia announced Monday he would be following John Calipari to Arkansas for his second season.

“Today I met with Coach Pope and had a great meeting with him. He’s an amazing guy and a great coach and he will do big things here! After our conversation I informed him that I will not be returning to Kentucky,” Ivisic said. “Big Blue Nation, my amazing teammates, I love you and this has been the best experience a kid from Croatia could ask for coming to the US. You took me as one of your own since the first moment and the love just grew! From the billboard to countless other things you’ve done to show love.. I mean, come on. Who does that? I will forever be grateful for that and it will have a special place in my heart.

“With all that being said, I made the lifetime decision to come to college for a few reasons. Main one’s to win a national championship and go to the NBA. Monumental part of that decision was Coach Cal, and no one does both of those at the same time than him. That’s why I am excited to announce that I am committing to Coach Cal and the Arkansas Razorbacks!”

Ivisic racked up 15 total appearances in Lexington, averaging 5.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game while shooting 57.7% from the field and 37.5% from three.

Now, he will return to college and follow Coach Cal to Fayetteville.
