Blumbergs decision came down to Grand Canyon and Creighton, but he also garnered interest from Auburn, Georgia Tech, Nevada and a host of others. 

Blumbergs had a strong showing in the FIBA u18 European Championships this past December, averaging 16.5 points and 9.8 rebounds a game.  He also made 10 of his 22 three-point attempts in six games.

“I can do everything on the court,” Blumbergs said. “I have worked so much on my shot and dribbling skills this season that I can attack defenders from outside and handle the ball very well even though my size is 6'10.”

“I fell very confident in shooting the ball from the three-point range and taking to the basket also in situations and I really like to compete against the bigs under the basket,” he added.

Blumbergs currently plays for GBA Prague in the Czech Republic.
