The 6-foot-11, 270-pound senior big man at Norfolk Collegiate (Va.) committed to Clemson.
``He wanted to the opportunity to play and he feels he'll have a chance to play at Clemson," Norfolk Collegiate coach Jim Markey said. "They've been on him the longest, but really it came down to Oliver Purnell."
Petrukonis played in a few tournaments with Boo Williams before playing in international competition in the summer for Lithuania.
``He had a big summer overseas," added Markey. "He played well in France at the Nike Elite Juniors and had 22 points and 9 rebounds in a loss to the United States."
``He's very skilled," he continued. "He can really shoot it, is a good passer, has a good feel for the game and is not a 6-10, 210-pound guy. He likes to face the basket and is comfortable in the post."
