Boris Bojanovsky, a 7-foot-3 native of the Slovak Republic, has committed to Florida State for 2012.
He also held offers from N.C. State, Virginia Tech, Miami, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State and others.
“This was always the goal for me when I came to CBA three years ago,” Bojanovksy said, according to the Canarias Basketball Academy website.
“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 summer’s U18 European Championship, he averaged 22 points and 13.3 rebounds.
“In his time here Boris has become a part of my family and he is a true credit to himself and to CBA,” Orellana said on the CBA website.
“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.”
