Andrej Stojakovic, the son of Kings great Peja Stojakovic, has announced his commitment to Stanford.

The 6-foot-7 small forward from Jesuit High School made the announcement on 247Sports. Oregon, UCLA and Texas were among the final selection.

“I ultimately chose Stanford because in my eyes it wasn’t just the best basketball decision for me but it was also the best academic, long-term decision of the four,” Andrej told 247Sports. “I believe in the whole program from top to bottom and the whole coaching staff and their philosophy.”

Earlier this year, 247Sports’ director of scouting Adam Finkelstein said Andrej Stojakovic “is a proven shot-maker like his dad with a full assortment of threes, pull-ups, and step-backs.”

The five-star prospect is ranked fourth nationally among small forwards and fourth overall in the state of California among recruits.

His father, Peja, played eight seasons for the Sacramento Kings, helping lead them to multiple playoff appearances in the early 2000s.
