Briscoe ready to get back on court

Monday afternoon will be the first time this season that Isaiah Briscoe gets a chance to play for Roselle Catholic.

Four-star shooting guard Isaiah Briscoe hasn't had a chance to suit up for Roselle (NJ) Catholic yet this season due to transfer rules. However Monday will end that, and Briscoe is looking forward to having a very productive season.

"I am just trying to be a leader, lead my team, and then hopefully go back to Jersey and win another state title," said Briscoe of the start to his season.

At 6-foot-2 Briscoe is one of the premier scorers in the 2015 class, and now he says he wants to be even more of a complete player.

"I have worked on just being a better leader," said Briscoe. "I want to show everybody how to win, and also I have worked on my body to get into better shape."

Recruiting wise Briscoe noted a handful of schools that are showing him significant attention.

"Arizona, Arizona State, Seton Hall, Rutgers, and Gonzaga are the main schools right now," said Briscoe.

Briscoe has family out in Arizona, and has visited Tucson before, however he says no more trips are planned. However the Wildcats remain high on his list.

"No, I am done going out to Arizona for visits," noted Briscoe. "I know they got Tyler Dorsey, but honestly to me that doesn't matter. I know I have to go to a school and do what I have to do to play no matter what, and then hopefully that would lead to me getting to the NBA."

Another school he has seen is Rutgers. The campus is close to Briscoe's home in North Jersey, and Briscoe feels staying close could be a good fit.

"Staying close to home could be a good thing," explained Briscoe. "My dad works in DC, so staying home and taking care of my mom could be a real good thing. I also like Rutgers and their coaching staff."

Overall Briscoe is in no hurry to make a decision and says that he plans to get as much information as he can before coming to a conclusion.

"I'm just waiting to see who is interested, and seeing where I want to go," said Briscoe. "I'm not going to change just because of where people in my class are committing."
