No. 12 HS Sr Jon Isaac May Go Straight To NBA

Author: admin

ESPN No. 12 ranked high school senior Jonathan Isaac says that he will consider declaring for the 2016 NBA Draft straight from prep school, according to a Sports Illustrated report.

 

NBA regulations state that US basketball players must be a year removed from graduating high school and also be 19 years old to be eligible for the draft.

 

Isaac, who plays at IMG Academy, is in his fifth year of prep basketball and will be 19 on Oct. 3

 

Isaac may take advantage of a new rule which now allows recruits to enter the draft, but withdraw at a later date and retain their college eligibility if their projected draft position dims.

 

The last players to go directly from high school to the NBA were Martell Webster, Andrew Bynum and Gerald Green in 2005.

 

“I think it’s cool and scary. A little bit of both,” Isaac said to Sports Illustrated’s Pete Thamel about potentially going right to the NBA and skipping college. “It’s cool because no one has done it in a decade, and it’s still scary because I don’t want it to be a bad decision.”

 

Isaac, a 6-9 forward, averaged 14.2 points and 5.6 rebounds on the Nike EYBL circuit last season playing for Each 1 Teach 1.

 

He committed to Florida State over the summer.

 

“I think Florida State is so special,” Isaac told ESPN back in July. “The people they have there, people they have coming in. I want to be part of a special program. They’re going to be great.”

 

Now we have to wait and see if Isaac ever makes it to Gainesville.
