Per a release from the Canarias Basketball Academy:
The 7-foot-3, (93) native of the Slovak Republic, Boris Bojanovsky has committed to play for Head coach Leonard Hamilton at Florida State University of the ACC. The 3 year CBA and Oakley College partnership graduate is delighted with the opportunity to be an integral piece of the reigning 2012 ACC Tournament Champions saying:
This was always the goal for me when I came to CBA three years ago. My dream has come true, to know Ill be playing in the ACC under a great coach and at a power house program, I can only thank Rob Orellana and his coaching staff for pushing me everyday to make this dream become a reality.
Playing in last summers U18 European Championship, Boris averaged 22 points and 13.3 rebounds. In his time at CBA, Boris has collected many All tournament nominations, Championship MVPs and leading scoring titles, the last coming at the 2011 Rinus de Jong Invitational (Netherlands). He possess great length and has an outstanding skill set for for a 7-foot-3 center and when you combine this with a high array of post-up moves and a deadly mid range shot, its no wonder why Boris was in such demand by so many high-major colleges. In fact during his time at CBA; Bojanovsky drew a recruiting interest and had received offers from NC State, Virginia Tech, Miami, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State, as well as several other SEC and Pac-12 schools. CBA Director, Rob Orellana said:
In his time here Boris has become a part of my family and he is a true credit himself and to CBA; this is a great move for him as he is a high level and highly skilled center who will be challenged night in night out in the ACC. I really believe that he will flourish under the guidance of head coach Leonard Hamilton. All of us at CBA and Oakley College partnership wish Boris the all the best as he moves on to the next stage of his development.
Orellana also worked with FSU football player Menelik Watson before Watson switched to boxing and then football.
Tomahawk FSU basketball analyst Michael Rogner will have more on Bojanovsky soon.
