Djurisic Signs with Dawgs

Posted Apr 13, 2011

ATHENS - Mark Fox announced on the signing of Nemanja Djurisic, a native of Montenegro, to a national letter-of-intent.

Though Djurisic originally hails from Podgorica, Montenegro, he played the 2010-11 season at the South Kent School in South Kent, Conn. In his lone season there, the 6-8, 230-pound forward averaged 20.1 points and 10.3 rebounds per game for the Cardinal, which went 18-14. South Kent's prep basketball program has recently produced Isaiah Thomas of Washington and Andray Blatche of the NBA's Washington Wizards.

"We're very excited to have added 'Nemi' to the program for next year," Fox said. "He's a terrific shooter with good size and a great feel for the game."

Djurisic also has extensive experience playing internationally for four straight Montenegrin national teams at the 2007-10 Under 18 European Championships.

The signing of Djurisic brings the number of 2010-11 Georgia signees to four. He joins the following trio, who signed last November during the early signing period: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, a 6-6 guard from Greenville, Ga.; Tim Dixon, a 6-10 forward from Columbus, Ga.; and John Florveus, a 7-0 center from Fort Myers, FL.
