Florida State grabs commitment from 7-3 center Boris Bojanovsky


Coming off the program’s most successful season in nearly five years, Florida State is back at it and adding size on the recruiting trail.

According to a release from the Canarias Basketball Academy, the Seminoles have secured a commitment from 7-3 center Boris Bojanovsky.

Bojanovsky, a native of the Slovak Republic, averaged 22 points and 13.3 rebounds this past season.

“This was always the goal for me when I came to CBA three years ago,” said Bojanovsky in the release. “My dream has come true, to know Ill be playing in the ACC under a great coach and at a power house program, I can only thank Rob Orellana and his coaching staff for pushing me everyday to make this dream become a reality.”

Before committing to Florida State, schools in pursuit of him included Virginia Tech,  Mississippi State, Georgia Tech, NC State, and Miami, among others.

“I really believe that he will flourish under the guidance of head coach Leonard Hamilton,” said CBA director Rob Orellana. “All of us at CBA and Oakley College partnership wish Boris the all the best as he moves on to the next stage of his development.”

Florida State finished 25-10 this past seasons, including 12-4 in the ACC. The Seminoles defeated North Carolina to win the ACC tournament championship, but lost to Cincinnati in the Round of 32 of the NCAA tournament.

Bojanovsky becomes the fifth member of the Seminoles’ 2012 recruiting class, which is headed by shooting guards Montay Brandon of Wesleyan Christian Academy (N.C.) and Aaron Thomas of Brewster Academy (N.H.).
