Big East School Scores Perimeter Prospect

Alex Dragicevich recently took a trip to a Big East program. Shortly after the visit, the versatile perimeter prospect made up his mind.

Since the July evaluation period ended perimeter players have been flying off the board.

On Tuesday the theme continued, as Mike Brey and his staff at Notre Dame scored Alex Dragicevich, a 6-foot-6, 175-pounder out of Northbrook (Ill.) Glenbrook North.

"I thought it was a great basketball fit for me as well as a great fit for me as a person," Dragicevich told Scout.com. "It's close and my family can come see me play and it's in a great conference."

Dragicevich, who also held offers from Xavier, Oklahoma State, Colorado, Utah, Miami-Ohio, Rhode Island and Loyola, took a visit to Notre Dame's campus on Monday and the visit had him ready to make a decision.

"Their campus is pretty neat," he said. "It was a campus that I could see myself going to. It was just a really cool experience. All the guys there were nice and I got the feeling that they were crazy about sport at Notre Dame."

Style of play and proximity also played big roles in his decision.

"I always felt their style of play fit me," Dragicevich explained. "Listening to Coach Brey I just thought it would work for me and the drive there was so quick. It was only two hours away. It's just so close and it's a great academic school."

Notre Dame now has a pair of 2010 commitments. Dragicevich and Eric Atkins, a 6-foot lead guard, make up their current class Since the July evaluation period ended perimeter players have been flying off the board.

Dragicevich averaged 21 points and six rebounds during his junior season at Glenbrook North.
