Read about it here.
I was disappointed there were no Ed quotes. But here’s what Sasa’s high school coach had to say about him:
- “Sasa is a thinking four-man who has the ability to score in a variety of ways and has a very high skill level,” Jordan said. “He can play with his back to the basket, take people outside and face the basket, handles the ball and shoots very well. He understands the game very well and is a great passer.”
- “I think he is a very good fit for the Big Ten with his skill level and strength,” Jordan said. “He is a strong kid and a very hard worker. When he came to us as a junior he weighed 205 pounds and now weighs around 230. His strength allows him to play good post defense and he has all the tools to be a scorer at the next level. He has a `refuse to lose’ attitude and doesn’t back down against the top players and teams in the country.”
- “He had to battle against a bunch of very good big men just in our program,” Jordan said. “We have five guys over 6-7 on our team this year. With our schedule he also played against some of the top prep players in the country and became our go-to guy on offense.”
