The Gonzaga men’s basketball team announced the signing of forward Filip Petrusev to a National Letter of Intent on Wednesday.
The 6-foot-11 Petrusev, from Montverde (Florida) Academy, is a native of Serbia. He helped Serbia win the U-18 European Championship last summer and was named the fourth-best NBA prospect by ESPN.com.
He also attended the NBA Basketball Without Borders Camp in Tel Aviv.
“He has a lot of potential and will be a great fit in our program,” Few said. “He’s a skilled big man that is mobile, can shoot from the 3-point line and pass. He will make others around him better. We’re expecting a lot from him.”
Petrusev had scholarship offers from Kansas, Virginia, Utah, Tennessee, Florida, Maryland, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, Arizona, Creighton, Illinois, Indiana, Stanford and Texas Tech. He said last month his other finalists were Tennessee, Utah, Virginia and Charlotte.
