Texas State went way out of state to pick up it's second pledge of the '16 class

This versatile small forward/power forward was on campus this past weekend for an official visit. After two days, the target from Lee Academy in Maine, decided it was time to be a Bobcat. Only we have the breaking news.

Texas State basketball hosted one visitor this weekend, and it was Nedeljko "Nedja" Prijovic. A highly skilled, versatile 3/4 man who stars for Lee Academy in Lee, Maine. He went through his official visit despite the downpours of rain in Central Texas, and just two days after returning to the Northeast he decided he didn't need to see much more, and committed to the Bobcats.



Prijovic is a 6'7" big man who at the high school level primarily plays the wing, but because of his height can also play down low. Originally from Serbia, highlight tapes and evaluations are tough to find on Nedja, but his skill set was highly talked about, being able to play either the 3 or 4 made him a top priority for Danny Kaspar and his staff.

He shows above average handles for a taller prospect, can create off the dribble, drive and finish with a soft touch, or he'll shoot over the top of his defender or defense. His range does stretch out to the three point line.

On the block he shows a developed game with his back to the basket. Being able to go either left or right he uses good savvy and can out maneuver most. He uses his length to slither around and finish point blank.

Prijovic is the second commitment for Texas State in the '16 class. He joins Nijal Pearson, a 6'4" two guard who committed just earlier this month.

Look for the Bobcats to at least use one more scholarship this cycle. We're hearing that the 'Cats will probably be looking to sign another recruit, but during the late period in April.
