Bleak update on Zvonimir Ivisic

Sounds like Big Z won’t be freed after all.

In an interview with KSR, 247 Sports reporter Travis Branham said he doesn’t believe Zvonimi Ivisic will play at Kentucky.

“To be honest, I’m not banking on him being on this roster next year,” Branham said. “I think it’s a very longshot bet.”

Assuming Ivisic doesn’t end up in Lexington, Branham said that DePaul is the school being rumored the most to land the Croatian big man.

The situation regarding Zvonimir Ivisic and the Kentucky Wildcats has yet to be resolved. It’s been a week since Kentucky Sports Radio’s Jack Pilgrim reported that there was concern regarding Ivisic and his status at UK.

Ivisic has yet to be cleared by the University of Kentucky admissions office. Why, you have probably asked? While there isn’t exactly a clear answer, and instead, it’s been mostly just speculation, the assumption is that Ivisic doesn’t speak English well enough.

And you’re probably thinking what everyone else has said over the last week: “Really?”

There have been multiple pieces of content on Twitter and social media of Ivisic speaking fluent English. So it’s unsure of what the hold-up is.

But one thing’s for certain: if Ivisic isn’t admitted soon, there’s a good chance he sets his sights on another college basketball program to suit up for this year. That would be a huge blow to John Calipari’s team, especially considering the lack of frontcourt depth for this year’s roster.

We’ll find out soon enough if Ivisic is admitted to Kentucky. For now, fans can only hope and pray the admissions office makes the right call.
