Australian star Kody Stattmann has committed to the University of Virginia.

 

The explosive 6-7 guard/forward averaged a whopping 31 points on 53 percent shooting from three for Australia at the 2017 FIBA U17 Oceania Championship.

 

Stattmann also impressed this summer in the US, averaging 14.5 points and 4.5 rebounds for Team Asia-Pacific at the Adidas Nations.

 

“Happy to announce that I will play my college basketball at the University of Virginia for Coach Tony Bennett,” Stattmann said via Twitter. “GO HOOS”

 

His North Queensland coach Shane Froling said that Stattmann is a spectacular player.

 

“He has the ability to shoot it, be long and get to the rim, his whole game is NBA potential,” Froling told the Herald Sun. “The sky is the limit for him.”

 

Rivals’ Corey Evans also loves Stattmann’s game.

 

“[He’s] one of the top international shooters [and an] underrated passer, too,” Evans said via Twitter. “Good potential out top.”

 

Virginia beat out the likes of Missouri, Stanford, and New Mexico to land Stattmann,

 

Stattmann is the Cavaliers first recruit in the 2018 class.
