The Heights is reporting that former Notre Dame Alex Dragicevich is heading to, well, the Heights.

Dragicevich visited campus a few weeks back and is deciding between Northwestern, Loyola (Illinois), Valparaiso and Oregon State.

A 6-foot-7 shooting guard, Dragicevich spent the last two seasons at Notre Dame but struggled to get playing time playing behind Scott Martin and Pat Connaughton. The Irish will also be bringing Missouri Gatorade POY Cameron Biedscheid into the program this season.

"My role on the team was a pleasure this year, it was great. If I wanted to experience more than that, I thought looking elsewhere would be advantageous for me."

The sophomore played in all 34 games this past season, starting 10 of those contests. He averaged 20.9 minutes and 6.6 points per game, shooting 39.2 percent from the field and 34.2 percent from deep. Dragicevich will have to sit out a year as per NCAA transfer rules and will join the very deep incoming sophomore class as a junior in 2013-14. He'll have two years of eligibility remaining.

The one knock here is that Dragicevich joins an already-crowded incoming sophomore class. Donahue will really have to earn his paychecks as he tries to even out the scholarship count over the four classes. With both Humphrey and Moton gone -- the only two would-be upperclassmen scholarship players -- Donahue will be forced to play a starting five comprised almost entirely of sophomores. With the addition of Dragicevich, BC adds even more to the this year's freshman class and barring some natural attrition, the program will have to continue to rely on recruited walk-ons to fill roster spots and leave scholarships open for the other three classes.

Welcome to the Heights, Alex.
