Here is the official release from UNM
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Head coach Craig Neal and the University of New Mexico men’s basketball program have received a commitment from Nikola Scekic for the 2015 recruiting class. The 7-foot, 245-pound center from Serbia will join the Lobos as a freshman from the MMG Academy in Florida.
“We are really excited to add Nikola to our roster, said head coach Craig Neal. “It’s very hard to get a player of his caliber this late in the year. He had some professional offers to play in Europe but decided to become a Lobo instead. Coach Huss stayed on top of things during the recruiting process, and Coach Harriman assisted as well. He’s got a good body for a freshman to play in the post. Nikola can also step out and shoot the ball with good range while being a great passer for a big man.”
