Jankovic Down To Three

One of the Missouri Tiger men's basketball teams top targets for the 2012 recruiting class has narrowed his list of schools to three and tells ShowMeMizzou.com the very latest on his choices and when a decision may come.

ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with 2012 PF Stefan Jankovic  6'11"  235  Huntington (WV)  Prep, and he updated us on his recruitment.

Jankovic confirmed that his final three schools are Missouri, Florida State, and Purdue.  Jankovic has already visited Missouri and Florida State. He plans to visit Purdue on October 15, and he still plans to sign in November.

"As of right now, that (Purdue visit) may be my last," said Jankovic.

I asked the skilled big man if the NCAA investigation of Miami, which includes an investigation of Coach Haith, will have an impact on his decision.

"I know Coach Haith from Miami," explained Jankovic. "I know him well enough where I can trust him. Obviously, it plays a little bit of a role. But, everything seems to be winding down, for him being cleared. It's not really something that I think about, but it is there. It's a little thing."

Jankovic said that "it'd be nice" if Coach Haith were cleared within the next month.

"It's in the back of my head," said Jankovic. "But, it's not something huge."
