New Jersey Wing Commits to La Tech

Another commitment for Kerry Rupp as he rebuilds the roster. A nod to Kevin at Parsing the WAC for catching this one.

The following quote comes from

A few days ago, 6’7 small forward Stojan Gjuroski ’10 of Life Center Academy (NJ) committed to Louisiana Tech, according to reports. Originally from Macedonia, Gjuroski is ranked number 36 in Northstar Basketball’s New Jersey Class of 2010 Fab 50. Gjuroski was one of the key members of an LCA team that finished ranked eighth in the New Jersey Postseason High School Fantastic 65.

“They knew about me before I came [over to the US] and they recruited me the hardest,” said Gjuroski of how he picked the Bulldogs. He added, “One of their scouts heard about me and my games in Europe.”

Quinnipiac, Iona, Rider, Northwestern, and Eastern Kentucky were the other schools that the long shooter considered before picked Louisiana Tech.

Gjuroski has yet to sign his National Letter of Intent, but will likely do so in the near future. “Not yet, I don’t know when, probably in the next 2-3 weeks,” Gjuroski said.

How does Gjuroski feel to have the decision behind him? “I feel safer now, and from the other side, I’m happy because I will be in a surrounding with good people who will make me a better person and player.”

Asked if he has any goals for his college career, Gjuroski replied, “To make my team b etter and become a better player.”
