Currently checking is as Georgia’s 38th-ranked 2019, 6-foot-4 combo-guard Isaiah Scott has been generating a slew of Division I interest of late.
And the Bradwell junior could be nabbing some offers here soon.
“I have a lot of schools talking to me and calling me; Kansas State called me over the summer, Georgia Southern, South Alabama, The Citadel, Navy, Iona, Mercer, Furman, and that’s about it,” said Scott.
“Georgia has been talking to my AAU coach a little, but I don’t know exactly how that’s going.”
He added: “I took a visit to the The Citadel, and the coach came up to me and told me in April he’s going to be calling and texting me every single day.”
A two-way standout with good size and an ability to create for himself and others, Scott mentioned to PHGA his own perceived strengths and weaknesses as a player.
“I feel like, especially this year, I’ve become a way better defender. And I feel like I’m really good at putting the ball in the basket, and also setting my teammates up so they can put the ball in the basket. And also, I’m a true vocal leader,” said Scott.
“I need to work on my jump-shot the most. My mid-range is good now, but just stepping out and hitting from further is what I need to work on the most.”
This is his first season at Bradwell Institute, and as he heads into the latter part of his junior year, he says things are really starting to come together for him and his team.
“At first, it was a little tough finding my way into the rotation, but now I’m seeing four quarters a game, and I’m doing big things for the team,” said Scott.
“My biggest focus is staying in the weight-room and staying ready for every upcoming challenge.”
This spring and summer is when Scott could really see his recruitment spike.He says he’ll primary play with Coastal Rebels again, but he could play with other teams when he’s available.
“They’ll (Coastal Rebels) be my main team, but if we don’t have anything going on then I might run with another team,” said Scott.
“I want to get as many offers as I can, and prove to people that I’m the player that I trained so hard to be — just get some respect.”
