Interesting fact about this 2012 recruit:
"Coach Ehsan came up and watched Isaiah work out," Stewart said. "We talked for a good bit about how they’re interested and that recruiting local kids is very important to their success. Isaiah knows a lot of their guys. He knows Sean Mosley just from playing on the AAU circuit over the years. So immediately when Maryland came, that made an impact on him. I probably have to say that [the Terps] are at the front of the pack, just because they carry a lot of weight around here and they’ve certainly done a good job in just the short period that they have been recruiting him actively."
Bracken calls him the best local prospect in the class, and he has a lot of interest from the University of Washington and Xavier. Lock him up now.
I'll take a class of Miles, Daquan Cook, and Justin Anderson, please. That would be a top 3 class, made up of purely local players. Won't happen, but I'll dream.
Nice start - the Terps nearly doubled Bowie State's score.
They'll be tough to beat this year. DeMatha, led by Quinn Cook, is seven. Daquan Cook's St. Frances Academy, in Baltimore, is 27, while Josh Selby's Lake Clifton is 29.
It's official. Too bad he's not a Terp. By all accounts, he wanted to be. Maybe we'll have a Born Ready/Maryland matchup in Maui. - bagold
The good news? He's committed, and probably staying that way. The bad? His qualification sounds really iffy.
No shot at him, but he's a good one, and local. Reminds me a lot of a more inside-focused Terrence Jones. Maybe less skilled off the dribble, but definitely a well-rounded game.
