    HIGH SCHOOL: Dragovic attended Harvard-Westlake HS as a senior, but was not able to compete due to CIF transfer rules. As a junior he played at San Marcos HS in Santa Barbara, Calif. and averaged 23.4 points, 7.8 assists and 6.0 rebounds. That was his first year in the United States after coming to America from his native Serbia. Was named to the Thousand Oaks preseason all-tournament team. San Marcos won the leauge title and lost in the CIF quarterfinals. Dragovic also competed in track and field running middle distances and the triple jump while at San Marcos and ran the 200m, 400m and on the distance medley relay team for Harvard-Westlake.

    PERSONAL: Dragovic was born on December 19, 1992 in Montenegro. He moved to Serbia with his parents when he was 10 years old. He is the younger brother of former UCLA standout Nikola Dragovic and friend of USC's 2011 first-round draft pick Nikola Vucevic. Says he chose USC because the school is a great combination of being an academic powerhouse with amazing athletics, as well as because he really likes what Kevin O'Neill and his staff are doing with the program. Likes to watch American movies with his favorite being Troy and his favorite actor being Al Pacino. Also likes to read in his spare time and hang out with teammates. Some day would like to visit Bora Bora and Alaska. Lists his proudest sports moment as the first time his brother and father came to see him play and he hit a three-pointer to send his club team's game vs. Beobasket into overtime, then scored 16 points in the overtime, including hitting a game-winning three-pointer. Played on the Under-15 and Under-16 teams in Serbia, with the U-16 team placing sixth at the European Championships.
