ESPN 300’s Andrej Stojakovic announces commitment to Stanford

Top-25 senior Andrej Stojakovic, the son of former NBA All-Star Peja Stojakovic, announced his commitment to Stanford on Monday.

Stojakovic picked the Cardinal over Texas, UCLA and Oregon. He revisited his finalists multiple times throughout the summer and early fall, with strong pushes from both Stanford and Texas.

Stojakovic, a 6-foot-7 short forward from Jesuit High School (California), is No. 24 on the ESPN 100 for the class of 2023. He rose to a borderline five-star lookout from outside the top 100 in early spring after excelling on the adidas grassroots circuit for the Compton Magic program.

“There’s a lot to like about his game,” said ESPN National Recruiting Director Paul Biancardi. “His scoring tools and presence on the pitch stand out the most. He plays the game with great balance, confidence, scoring and passing ability. Similar to his father, he plays advanced from a live ball triple threat position using clever shot deceptions and jab steps to move his defender. He moves off the ball to make room, and with the ball in his hands, with his head held high and eyes open, he surveys the pitch.

“Because of his background, he understands distance and the importance of moving the ball to the open man. His ability to slow down or speed up and execute both on the edge and in color is fun to watch.”

Stojakovic is the second top-30 contestant to sign for Stanford in the 2023 class, joining Georgia-native Kanaan Carlyle (No. 29), who plays for Overtime Elite.

This is also the third time in four years that coach Jerod Haase has landed a top-25 recruit, following Ziaire Williams in 2020 and Harrison Ingram in 2021.
