Briscoe goes Blue
The Kentucky Wildcats have an uncanny ability to get involved late with nearly any recruit that they want. A perfect example played out on Tuesday with the announcement from Isaiah Briscoe. The Roselle (NJ) Catholic standout announced his intention play his college basketball for John Calipari on national TV. “Next year I will attend the University of Kentucky,” announced Briscoe. “Playing with great players, I think I can handle great players,” said Briscoe. “I think Coach Calipari has a machine going on.” Ultimately the decision for Briscoe came between Kentucky, St. John’s, and Connecticut with Calipari and his staff winning out and landing one of the top combo guard in the country. At 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, Briscoe has the size to play either guard position and is one of the best pure scorers in the class of 2015. Bricoe’s immediate role isn’t going to be defined at Kentucky until it is known who stays and who leaves for the NBA Draft. None the less, Briscoe is a competitor and takes pride in going against some of the top players in the country battling for playing time. Currently Briscoe is ranked No. 15 overall and as the No. 3 shooting guard in the class.
