Serbian Forward Makes Decision

Drazen Zlovaric, forward out of Weston (Fla.) Sagemont, ended his recruitment. After sifting through multiple offers he settled in on one SEC program and made his decision.

There won't be any more official visits for Weston (Fla.) Sagemont forward Drazen Zlovaric. The 6-foot-9 Zlovaric reached his college decision on Thursday when he selected the Georgia Bulldogs over Texas and Arkansas.

"He just felt like Georgia was the best fit for him," Sagemont coach Adam Ross said. "He visited them unofficially last year and officially two weeks ago. He felt very comfortable with Coach Felton, his staff, the other players and Georgia as a school and social environment."

Felton's Bulldogs emphasized skill development with the combo forward and that was something that tipped the scales in their favor. Then, the always important playing time factor was addressed.

"I think at Georgia they don't have anyone on their current roster like Drazen in the sense of being a very big wing," Ross. "That presents an opportunity for him to get playing time very early in his college career."

Wednesday was a huge day at the school according to Ross. "It was wild. 41 Division I programs were in yesterday for a workout. Texas, Georgia and Arkansas (all head coaches) were there. He did home visits with both Felton and Barnes and I think at the end of those home visits he made his decision. It was clear: Georgia was the school for him. We have 5 Division I kids getting recruiting at different levels. I set one date and they all came on one day. It was an interesting day."
