Report: Wildcats won the race ahead of Tar heels to sign top talented shooter

Kentucky is still strongly interested in the recruitment of Andrej Stojakovic.
The Mark Pope era at Kentucky has officially begun, and the recruiting season is in full force.

Pope already has four-star prospects Collin Chandler and Travis Perry, as well as Drexel center Amari Williams, but the head coach still needs to put together a whole roster.

Kentucky has been linked to and contacted Stanford transfer Andrej Stojakovic following a strong rookie season.

Andrej, the son of former NBA All-Star Peja Stojakovic, was a top-25 recruit for the 2023 class.
Stojakovic is known as a three-point shooter. It’s no secret that Pope’s offensive approach favors 3-point shooting, as his BYU Cougars were second in the country in 3-point percentage last season.

Now that the Stanford transfer has been in the portal for a little while, he is narrowing down his options and scheduling visits.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Borzello, Kentucky is still extensively connected in Stojakovic. Other schools in the running include North Carolina, California, and Michigan.

Stojakovic may visit Kentucky, according to KSR’s Jacob Polacheck, but nothing is certain at this time.

Stojakovic, a 6-foot-7, 190-pound true freshman at Stanford, averaged 7.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in 2023-24. He has three years of eligibility left.

The Cats still have plenty of time to sign some crucial players for the 2018 season’s squad, but the clock is ticking.
