The Texas A&M Aggies have had a ton of recent success recruiting in the Lonestar State, and again the Aggies landed a quality prospect on Monday. Talented big man Isiah Jasey picked the Aggies after making a recent visit to College Station.
At 6-foot-9 and 225 pounds with an ability to really run the floor, Jasey has shown some definite potential throughout his high school career. While he has had some problems with inconsistent production, Jasey shows big time flashes, and could develop into a very good player in the SEC under A&M boss Billy Kennedy.
On a loaded Houston Hoops team in the Nike EYBL, Jasey averaged 6.6 points and 5.8 rebounds per game while shooting 55 percent from the floor.
Along with the Aggies, Jasey had interest from schools such as Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, SMU, and Houston just to name a few.
According to his high school coach at Sunrise Prep, Luke Barnwell, Texas A&M is getting a heck of a prospect.
"Isiah has a tremendous motor and his work ethic is special," said Barnwell. "He is a high level athlete and his immediate impact will be felt defensively blocking shots and rebounding."
He continued, "I think Isiah is just scratching the surface offensively and he will continue to get better."
Billy Kennedy has used his bigs in a variety of ways in the past, and Barnwell feels that Jasey will have no problem adapting.
"Isiah would in anywhere at any school because he is a great kid and his motor is always running," said Barnwell.
This is the second commitment for the Aggies in the 2017 class. Jasey joins fellow Texas native T.J. Starks in a very solid two man group so far.
