Vanderbilt has brought in former Providence Friar small forward Ryan Fazekas for an official visit and the Commodores are hoping to impress the 6'8 215 pound shooter enough to add him to the roster.
Fazekas is on campus this weekend taking in all the sights and sounds that Vanderbilt and the city of Nashville have to offer. The former Big East player left Providence in hopes of finding a better opportunity and the Commodores might be a perfect fit.
A high academic student, Fazekas is an outstanding outside shooter who has range from deep along with the size to rebound on the blocks. Vanderbilt is known as being a 3-point shooting program that is also one of only two teams to make a three point basket in every game since the addition of the three point line.
The Chesterton, Indiana native played two seasons at Providence where he saw his minutes and points diminish during his second year as a Friar. As a freshman, Fazekas averaged 5.1 points per game while grabbing 2.4 boards a game. Those numbers dropped as a sophomore and his role on the team appeared to fall further down the bench.
Current Vanderbilt head coach Bryce Drew previously recruited Fazekas when he was the head man at Valparaiso. A prior relationship with the 6'8 shooter has brought Fazekas to Vanderbilt this weekend with an opportunity to compete in the Southeastern Conference.
