He chose Stanford over his other finalists: UCLA, Texas and Oregon.
Stojakovic (6-foot-6, 185 pounds) is a five star small forward for Jesuit (California). He is ranked No. 4 at his position and also No. 4 in the state of California. Here is the most important bar.

The scouting report from Adam Finkelstein at 247 Sports shows that his game is similar to that of Peja, but more dynamic.
“Stojakovic is a highly skilled winger who has good positional size, can score from different levels and even initiate the attack as a guard. The son of former NBA star Peja Stojakovic, Andrej is a proven shooter like his father with a full complement of 3-pointers, pull-ups and step-backs. Like his father, he is working to perfect his own, semi-unconventional release that appears on the left side of his body. He is very comfortable in the mid-post and mid-range area, where he creates separation and uses his positional size to score over smaller defenders.”
Like his father, Stojakovic has tremendous range. He shot 40% from three as a junior matching Peya’s career NBA percentage. He also scored 25.3 points per game and averaged 9.3 rebounds and 1.4 steals per contest.
Stoyakovich is the second commitment to Stanford’s 2023 program, along with 5-star combo guard Canaan Carlisle. The Cardinals are now No. 23 in the recruiting cycle, one spot ahead of North Carolina.
