This morning ETSU basketball signed, 6’10 230lbs Mladen Armus, which marks the 4th signing of the 2017-2018 recruiting class. Armus, who comes to ETSU from Serbia, spent his HS career at Southwest Christian Academy in Little Rock, Arkansas, where he helped win an NACA National Championship and was named MVP of the tournament. SW Christian Academy finished 36-3 for the year. While at SW Christian Academy Mladen averaged 16.3 points and 12.8 rebounds, while shooting 60 percent from the field and 73 percent at the free throw line.
Before attending Southwest Christian Academy Armus played for the KK Paritzan Junior Team in Serbia. In 2014, Armus helped guide Serbia to a Bronze medal in the U17 World Championship in Dubai, while he has been invited to play in the U20 European Championship this summer.
In addition to ETSU, Armus also received heavy interest and offers from Arkansas, St. Louis, South Florida, St. Bonaventure, Fresno State, Washington, Washington State, Creighton and Arkansas Little Rock.
At 6’10 Mladen Armus will fill a big hole at the center position for the upcoming season after ETSU lost both Tevin Glass and Hanner Mosquera-Perea to graduation.
Mladen Armus will join fellow ETSU newcomers Bo Hodges, Jeromy Rodriguez, and James Harrison as part of the 2017-2018 recruiting class. There are still two scholarships left to fill for the Bucs.
ETSU Hoops will continue to monitor recruiting activity throughout the off-season and will report on any signings or commitments as they happen.
My friend, @ForbesETSUhoops just "stole" one. 6-11 Serbian C signing with Mladen Armus signing with Bucs as they reload.
