CBA´s Czech center, Jakub Jokl (7.0/1996), will play NCAA Division 1 basketball at the University of Utah after committing to the Utes yesterday.


“My family and I always trusted in Rob and CBA. I came here to be a better player and to make my dream come true. I have been working to get an opportunity and now I will be able to play for the Utes. During my only year at the Academy I could work on all my skills with the best staff, particularly with the ex NBA Champion and ex Euroleague player, Richard Petruska, who helped me in my development. I didn’t go wrong when I chose the CBA”, said Jakub.

In addition, Jokl will be coached by Larry Krystkowiak, ex NBA Player and ex Head Coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, and will play the PAC 12 Conference, one of the toughest conference in the United States.

This way, the Director of CBA, Rob Orellana, was extremely pleased as well: “Jakub is a great guy, who has worked a lot during the season to get his goal. He is going to play at a top University, but he is prepared for what lies ahead. Utah has signed a center who is able to move and shoot effortlessly. I´m sure that Coach Krystkowiak will enjoy coaching Jakub”.
