Xavier's head coach Chris Mack landed in Thessaloniki Greece to speak to Alexander Vezenkov(2.05-SF/PF) of Aris Thessaloniki about enlisting with them next season. Vezenkov is one of the best prospects of his age group in Europe and although the spotlight belonged to Dario Saric in the U18 European Championship of 2012, Vezenkov left his own mark with the National Team of Bulgaria averaging 16.7 points 5.7 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 9 games during the tournament.
Vezenkov has been enjoying some increased playing time in the A1 league in Greece with Aris lately. Head coach Vaggelis Aggelou believes in the talent of young Vezenkov and is trying to give him a crucial role in the team. Xavier is one of the best colleges in the NCAA and their lure would be strong but Aris are one of the most historic clubs in Europe and the recognition that comes from them is another incentive that will not be taken lightly. Vezenkov is bound to be a target for other teams in Europe as well and his talent is undeniable.
