Currently know as Nor Cal’s best kept secret for the class of 2022 is Isaiah Baptista of Kimball High School.
A very smooth and shot first guard Isaiah has very good feel when it comes to offense. He does not force much and lets the game come right into his hands. With great passing ability Isaiah’s passes are usually spot on in his teammates hands.
With good range he can knock down open shots at a high percent while also being very active in the midrange. On top of being able to score against other very good players he can pass with the best of them. Throwing his teammate open and always looking to get that next pass.
“I like to model my game after Damian Lillard, because of his ability to hit floaters, 3’s whatever his team needs.” said Isaiah also stating that he likes to get his teammates involved more than he likes to score, but scoring comes natural to him.
Isaiah plays for the Wolverines basketball club out of Mountain House where he is their number one option. Watching him with his aau he takes his game to new heights. Scoring when his team needs him to and also picking up the other teams best guard.
When I asked him about his club team he told me that those guys are his brothers and he’s looking to go the long run with them. Which shows Isaiah’s team first mentality
Coming in as a freshman people are just now starting to catch the surface of Isaiah’s game. Looking forward to covering him as his recruitment picks up and his game continues to evolve.
