Croatian shooter takes visits

A solid class of 2012 prospect still left on the board has already made one visit and is in the process of making another.

Schools continue to look to fill out their 2012 classes, and some late visits are being made. One prospect who has been on a pair of trips is La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere forward Matej Buovac.

At 6-foot-6 and 215 pounds with the ability to shoot the basketball, Buovac had a solid year for the La Lumiere Lakers and head coach Alan Huss. The pick and pop forward had some big games against quality competition, and now his recruitment is starting to take shape.

"He is on a visit to Tulane right now," said Huss. "They have offered him and he is very interested in seeing the campus and what they have to offer."

Along with the Green Wave, offers are also on the table from UAB and New Mexico State. Already Buovac has made an official visit to see New Mexico State and he came away impressed with what he said.

According to Huss however, Buovac is not going to make a rash decision after a visit.

"Matej plans on playing in the open period with the CAPS All-Stars," said Huss. "They play in Merrillville this weekend and in Indianapolis next weekend."

After he has a chance to play for the coaches in April and evaluates his options a decision is expected from Buovac.
