Luka Vasic's former teammate and former hartford commit. committed to hartford because of simovic. transferring to montverde and now a four star on espn. let's hope his simovic is really close and that he wants to play with vasic. would be a great get. looks like he is about to blow up.

If we don't lock him up soon, I'm afraid he's going to get major offers with his new high school.

at this point in the process, what does "lock him up" even mean?

in basketball, verbals stick more often than not.

If we were talking football, a verbal from a 4 star would mean nothing to me.

Just got my first look at 2018 big Filip Petrusev, who recently decommitted from Hartford. I'd expect his recruitment picks up quite a bit.

Says he wants to play from day 1. Pretty decent chance of that here.

I guess we'll soon see if Simovic has the pull with the European players, as advertised.
Hopefully between him and Vasic, we can get the inside track !

From Josh Gershon of Scout:
Quote
Filip Petrusev made the move from Serbia to the United States for his junior season of high school, but the 6-foot-10 post missed much of the year due to a stress fracture in his foot. Given the fact that he also made an early commitment to Hartford, he was a player who was very much off the radar. Petrusev, who transferred to Montverde (Fla.) Academy for his senior year, was tough to scout over the last year, but finally showed what he’s capable of at the FIBA U18 Division A European Championships in Bratislava, Slovakia. The senior big man has very good size, is mobile, has respectable footwork, has a nice feel on rebounding and improving touch inside. Due to the promise he showed in Slovakia, Petrusev went from unranked to a Top 50 prospect in 2018.

In addition, Adam Zagoria tweeted that Tennessee and UCLA were both at Montverde today to see Petrusev, whom Zagoria says is a legit 6-11.

normally id give up on landing someone with these offers, but the fact he isn't from America and has a relationship with a coach and player the team keeps us in contention I think. Still a long shot though.
