Illinois native and Class of 2016 big man Nick Rakocevic is down to 10 schools, he announced on Twitter. Regarded as the No. 75 overall player in Rivals‘ Class of 2016 national rankings, Rakocevic struggled a bit in the EYBL this spring, but he’s still one of the better shooting big men in the class.
Rakocevic is down to Creighton, Indiana, Iowa, Miami, Tennessee, Texas, UCLA, USC, Virginia and Wisconsin. The 6-foot-9 forward attends St. Joseph High School in suburban Chicago and helped the program to a Class 3A state title last season.
It’s worth noting that no program from Illinois is in the top 10 for Rakocevic, as he’ll be looking to leave the Land of Lincoln for college.
