Maybe this will make you feel better. This article was written one week after the article you post.
Here is some older information on Dejan and a guard that we are recruiting.
6ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢2ÃƒÂ¢Ã ¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â combo-guard Shane James from Milliken Mills continues to climb the rankings of Canadian seniors. A clear top ten player, Shane has showed vast improvement since the summer. A recent indication of this was his 24 point second half to lead Milliken past Cathedral in the Silver Fox. A definite mid-major plus player, James recently had a strong performance in a tournament in Virginia. In this, James outplayed top 100 Senior Vernon Hamilton who is heading to Clemson next year. From speaking with James and coaches, the top schools on his list are UNC-Wilmington, Wichita State, and Butler. Canisius and Albany are recruiting James very hard, however it will be hard for them to out-recruit schools such as Wilmington, Butler and Wichita State who all draw great crowds and offer a chance to go to the tournament and play at a level that teams such as Kent State played at last year. These are great college environments that are hard to beat. Look for James to take some visits very soon.
6ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢8ÃƒÂ¢Ã ¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â forward Dejan Grkovic is another player who has made great improvement in his game over the past year. Not many big men have the skill level and move as well as Grkovic. He is a highly talented player who intrigues some high-major schools such as Utah and St. Louis. They are going to monitor his game some more and see if he is a player they want to offer. In a conference such as C-USA you can get away with 6ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢7ÃƒÂ¢Ã ¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â and 6ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢8ÃƒÂ¢Ã ¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â power forwards, as powers such as Cincinnati often start centers who are only 6ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢9ÃƒÂ¢Ã ¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â. Thus this is a high-major conference that could work for Grkovic. He is such a hard worker that he would make a great addition for a St. Louis or a Utah. There is also a vast amount of quality mid-major programs that would love to add Grkovic. At the top of that list are UNC-Wilmington, Butler, Western Kentucky, Holy Cross, Boston University, and Albany. DonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t be surprised if some Atlantic-10 schools start to take notice of Grkovic.
