Brissett is one to watch
Sophomore Oshae Brissett is sure to be a popular recruit this coming season. Brissett, a native of Canada, played in just 12 games at Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep as a freshman before fracturing his knee. He got back on the court in the summer and had a strong showing at the recent John Lucas Midwest Invitational. Brissett played with great energy on both ends of the floor. He was aggressive with his drives to the basket, made jump shots from both mid-range and three and also showed potential on the defensive end. “I feel like when I’m playing well I can do a lot on the defensive end,” Brissett told Scout.com. “When my shot isn’t falling and I can’t get to the hole easy, I like to fall back on my defense and grab rebounds. That really helps.” “If I get six points a game, but I get nine rebounds I feel like my whole game is complete with a couple of block shots and deflections,” he added. Brissett’s effort level and motor particularly stood out. “That’s what I try to do,” Brissett. “It gets the offense thinking when someone is long like that and their arms are always in the way.” Brissett, a 6-foot-6 wing prospect, said schools are beginning to notice his talent. “The first couple practices coaches came to and watched us and after practice a lot of coaches said they liked how I played and they’ve kept in touch,” he said. “Mainly Oklahoma, Oregon and UNLV,” Brissett added. “Those are the three main schools that are keeping in touch.” Brissett, who plays travel team ball with Canada Elite, said all three of those schools have offered him a scholarship. He took an unofficial visit to UNLV last week.
