According to 247 Sports’ composite rankings, Stojakovic is listed as a four-star small forward in the class of 2023. In addition, 247’s composite rankings have Stojakovic as the 20th-ranked player at his position and the ninth-ranked player from the state of California.

While playing for Jesuit High School in Carmichael, California, Stojakovic has been modeling his game after his father while also trying to add his own style.

“I view myself as more of an all-around player,” Stojakovic told 247Sports in an interview in January. “But, if I’m being honest a lot of my game is from him and from working out with him. All of the little things that he teaches me matter and they work in the game so I’m sticking to that.”

During a recent game from the beginning of April, Stojakovic dropped 27 points and 15 rebounds against Bronny James’ team in the AAU season opener. Since the last year began, Stojakovic has been picking up more and more steam on the recruiting trail.

Four-star small forward and Tennessee target Andrej Stojakovic currently has 12 offers according to 247: Cal Poly, Connecticut, Indiana, Louisville, Minnesota, San Francisco, St. Mary’s, Stanford, UC Santa Barbara, USC, Washington State, and Tennessee.

Over the course of a 16-year NBA career, Peja Stojakovic ended his time on the court after his championship in Dallas in 2011. Prior to that, Stojakovic spent time with Sacramento, Indiana, New Orleans, and Toronto. Stojakovic was an NBA Champion, a three-time all-star, an All-NBA second-team selection in 2004, and a two-time three-point contest champion (2002, 2003).
