A lot of out-of-area college programs have done well getting prospects from the state of Indiana the last few years. DII programs like Maryville and Nova Southeastern love to recruit the area and are in on the same kids most of the time.
This time around it was Nova Southeastern that was able to get the services of Plainfield wing Max Kurkowski. The 6'7 forward took a weekend visit down to Nova Southeastern and before the weekend was over he made his commitment.
“I committed to Nova Southeastern University,” Kurkowski sent in a text Sunday afternoon. “I love the coaching staff. They are awesome and I really connected with them. Their style of play really fit into how I play also.”
The Fort Lauderdale program has done well in the Hoosier state as of late picking up guys like Dwayne Gibson (Park Tudor), Troy Spears (Martinsville), Chris Page (Plainfield), and Jordan Stookey (Warsaw). When Max steps on campus, Chris Page will be the only player to graduate so in his first year he will be one of four Indiana players in their program.
“I really like the players and they made me feel welcome.” Max said. “I played open gym with them and I felt like I fit in. Academically, they had a lot to offer.”
Maryville was in it at the end but Nova impressed enough this weekend to make him pull the trigger.
“I was considering Maryville a little. My biggest decision was committing or waiting to gain more interest during the season but Nova was a perfect fit so I just accepted.”
