Virginia has made the final six on 4-star, small forward Andrej Stojakovic’s list of schools.

The 6-foot-7 standout from Carmichael, Calif., announced via social media on Friday that his remaining schools he is considering are: Duke, Texas, Stanford, Virginia, Oregon and UCLA.

He eliminated Kentucky, Kansas, Indiana, USC, Tennessee, Louisville and UConn.

“I have built a great connection with Coach (Tony) Bennett and Coach (Kyle) Getter so far,” Stojakovic told Joe Tipton of On3. “They’ve talked about the winning culture with Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome, plus that academics are great.”

Stojakovic, the son of former NBA All-Star Peja Stojakovic, has officially visited UCLA and Stanford, plus has a visit scheduled to Texas in early September.

His goal is to make it to the NBA and said he will look heavily at the school that can help get him there. Because most of his family is overseas, he wants to play in college somewhere it will be easy for his family to travel.

Stojakovic is ranked the No. 7 small forward in the country by On3 consensus and the No. 31 prospect in the 2023 recruiting class.
