Virginia has jumped into the race for the son of a former 3-time NBA All-Star.

Tony Bennett has extended an offer to 6-foot-7, 4-star wing Andrej Stojakovic from Jesuit High in Carmichal, Calif. Stojakovic’s father is Peja Stojakovic, a former NBA champion (Dallas Mavericks) and a two-time, 3-point contest winner.

Andrej, who said his game has advanced by learning from his father, is a 247Sports composite top-100 prospect whose ratings are predicted to jump this summer. He is the No. 73 overall prospect in the country according to the composite rankings, the No. 17 small forward and No. 8 in California.

Stojakovic is a potential big-time scorer and one of the best shotmakers in the Class of 2023. Virginia will have its work cut out to get Stojakovic’s attention. He has offers from Kentucky, UCLA, Arizona, UConn, Kansas, Florida, Indiana, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Minnesota, Oregon, Tennessee, Stanford, Texas, Southern Cal and others.

Stojakovic said he would like to visit Kentucky, Stanford, Tennessee, Indiana and UConn for sure.

He said he is interested in a good balance of academics and basketball in his college destination and that his ultimate goal is to play in the NBA. Check out some of his highlights below.
