CCSF Men’s Basketball: “Congrats to Michael Steadman @mikesteady123 committed earlier this morning to @sjsucoachpri and @SJSUMBB”

Powered by a streak of double-doubles, 6-foot-5 2019 prospect Viktor Rajkovic has raised his scoring average to 18.5 points per game for Branson High and Coach Jonas Honick this season. From someone who described his top talents as “my mid-range jump shot, getting to the basket and rebounding,” Rajkovic is also an intriguing recruit because his father stands 6-foot-8.
Many factors figure in to a player’s statistics and their interpretation, but the first is seizing opportunity, or not. For example, a certain player may get a higher number of shot attempts or enjoy better odds of grabbing more rebounds at a school way up north or over in the San Joaquin than he would at powerhouse City College of San Francisco with its DI and DII talent-laden roster. Production is, after all, production but the matter of scoring with attractive proficiency, securing quality boards away from opponents and other plus skills cannot be discounted, especially during the recruiting process.
