Chrabascz Shows Well In Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS, In. -- Andrew Chrabascz added an Atlantic 10 offer after a strong showing at the Adidas Invitational.

INDIANAPOLIS, In. -- Power forward Andrew Chrabascz isn't the biggest player, but as an undersized four-man, he still gets it done.

With a host of offers -- over 30 in fact -- Chrabascz showed very well at the Adidas Invitational in his first event with ECE Mass.

He claims offers from "almost the entire Atlantic 10", and landed yet another one from new member Butler.

While in town for Adidas, Chrabascz visited the Bulldogs' campus and head coach Brad Stevens extended a scholarship offer.

"I wasn't as aggressive as I should've been the first few games," he said. "I started getting into the flow of things and getting more assertive and thought I did real well. I always want to do better, though."

When he is playing at his best, he's able to work well in the post and also take his defender off the dribble and score. At six-foot-six, he has the endurance and will to work hard enough and in many cases out hustles bigger defenders.

Chrabascz called the recruiting process a "learning process", but said he can't complain about being given the chance to play basketball at the next level and earn a full-ride for an education.

He plans on being rather calculated with his timetable, though.

"In an ideal world, I'd have my decision made before my senior season for basketball," he said. "I just don't think I want to have that over my head during my last season because I want to enjoy it. If I'm not ready by that time, I'm not going to rush it just to say I have it made. Hopefully it will be that way, though."

He thinks very highly of the Atlantic 10 Conference, and sees it being a possible place to play.

"The A-10 of course has gotten a lot stronger by adding Butler and VCU," he said. "It's definitely one of the top conferences and that's always a motivation. There's a lot of local teams so if I go in the A-10, my parents could watch me then."
