Mislav Brzoja’s high school coach spoke with CatsIllustrated.com recently about Brzoja’s visit to UK’s campus this past week. Kentucky played host to the 6-5 shooting guard who arrived Wednesday night before leaving Thursday evening. Though according to Brzoja’s coach the visit went well, he has still not received an official offer from the Kentucky coaching staff.
His high school coach, David Jamerson, had the following to say about the visit:
“I think (Brzoja and his host family are) hopeful and excited, and they’re just going to wait and see in the next four or five days what direction Kentucky wants to go…They loved (Calipari). Honestly they loved everything.”
While on his visit, Brzoja worked out with some of the Kentucky players (though which players were in attendance could not be verified). His coach admitted that the level of play in some of the drills during the workout were a test for Brzoja. His coach seemed to feel like the visit overall was very positive, but the Kentucky coaches still have some decisions to make before offering Brzoja. His coach did seem to believe that Kentucky might have an opening for a shooting role for Brzoja to fill on their roster.
The decision on whether or not to offer Mislav Brzoja very well might hinge on how the Anthony Bennett and Mark Lyons recruitment processes pan out. Brzoja seems very impressed though with Kentucky. To read the full article of Brzoja’s coach’s recap, check out the CatsIllustrated.com here.
