DThe Hakro Merlins Crailsheim have signed basketball professional Bruno Vrcic from Bundesliga rival Fraport Skyliners from Frankfurt. The 21-year-old comes from Hessen to Hohenlohe, as the Crailsheimer announced on Monday. Vrcic was trained in the youth of the German runner-up FC Bayern Munich. In the 2020/21 season, the shooting guard was used 17 times and scored an average of 6.1 points. In preparation for the pre-season he injured his cruciate ligament and had to pause the entire season.
“Bruno is a player who brings what we wanted in the summer. He’s young and can play in several outside positions,” said coach Sebastian Gleim about the newcomer, who he knows from his time in Frankfurt.
