The Serbian native moved to the U.S. five years ago and holds 20 scholarship offers including Florida, Arizona, Georgia Tech, Kansas, Wake Forest and Miami among them. The past two travel seasons Koprivica has played with Nike Team Florida. This year he averaged 8.2 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game.
