Armchair Illini Breakdown: Tomislav Ivisic

Per Alex KyiIvisic is a legit 7-footer who currently plays in the Montenegrin basketball league and is averaging 7.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in approximately 16 minutes per game. Tomislav is the brother of former Kentucky big man, Zvonimir. Zvonimir played last season at Kentucky and has transferred to the University of Arkansas after John Calipari took over that program. Orlando Antigua recruited Zvonimir to Kentucky and that relationship played huge in helping land Tomislav.

Tomislav will join a talented and intriguing frontcourt of Morez Johnson Jr. and Carey Booth. Johnson Jr and Booth both currently project as power forwards, hence having Tomislav Ivisic as a true 7-footer is a bonus for Illinois Basketball.
