Second former Mizzou player Stefan Jankovic commits to Hawaii

Stefan Jankovic shown above, is a very intriguing addition to the Hawaii program come 2014.

Former Missouri forward Stefan Jankovic has committed to the University of Hawaii, according to many sources. Jankovic announced his transfer in November, and he now joins Negus Webster-Chan as the second former Missouri player to transfer to the Rainbow Warriors in the last year. The 6’11, 200 lb. sophomore averaged 3.1 points and 1.6 rebounds in 28 games for Missouri. Jankovic said in November that he was transferring because he “wanted to see more consistent playing time”. Jankovic was born in Serbia and raised in Ontario, Canada, noting that he transferred out of Mizzou on Nov. 22. He played briefly against UH on Nov. 16 in Kansas City, grabbing a single rebound. He visited the Manoa campus this week and said he notified UH coach Gib Arnold of his decision this afternoon. Jankovic will enroll at UH for the spring semester and be eligible to play in mid-December of 2014, giving him essentially a little more than two and a half years of eligibility. Jankovic is the third member of Missouri’s 2012 recruiting class to leave the program. Guard Negus Webster-Chan and Dominique Bull transferred shortly after last season, leaving for Hawaii and George Washington, respectively.


He's the European style power forward who relies on his skill and ability to make jump shots from different spots on the court. His skill set allows him to handle the ball and create. Possesses good touch and developed turnaround from the post though he doesn't have actual post moves in the lane nor does he operate that way. Hawaii should be very excited for the upcoming future with Jankovic.
