Daytona State College transfer Alex Kotov has signed his national letter of commitment to Illinois State University men's basketball according to head coach Dan Muller. 

"I'm so excited to add Alex to the family," Muller told goredbirds.com. "He is a 6-foot-10 skilled forward who will have three years to play as a Redbird due to an injury last season. Alex played for a terrific coach in junior college in Martin McCann, and a terrific coach at Montverde under Kevin Boyle. Alex is a competitor who loves the game of basketball, and I believe his future is very bright on and off the court as a Redbird."

Kotov appeared in just three games with Daytona State his sophomore year before an injury took him out for the season. Due to appearing in just three games, Kotov took a redshirt season, giving him three seasons of eligibility with the Redbirds. 

As a freshman Kotov averaged 6.1 points, 5.9 rebounds over 30 games.
