He says living away from home was a different experience for him at first.

Slazinski says he feels that he’s improved every aspect of his game throughout the year.
In terms of his recruitment, he holds offers from the likes of Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, California, Georgia Tech, TCU and others. He says Virginia, Purdue, UCLA and Vanderbilt have been contacting him the most lately.
Since the 6th grade, Slazinski has been playing for the Houston Defenders of the UAA.
He calls himself a “matchup nightmare” as in he can play any position and is difficult to guard when he lines up anywhere.
Slazinski is full of length at 6’9″ and has the muscle to keep up with bigger players at 210 lbs. He surprises you with his craftiness and quite frankly can do plenty with his frame. His jumper is his best attribute, but he works hard to do a lot more than that on the floor.
