One of the most skilled power forwards in the 2019 class is Temecula (Calif.) Rancho Christian’s Isaiah Mobley.
The 6-foot-8, 190-pound four man – ranked 32nd in the class by Scout – has a very good feel and can play inside or out given his ball skills for the position, footwork and midrange jumper.
The four-star prospect is pleased with how he’s playing to start the year.
“I’m playing pretty well,” Mobley said. “I started slow but now I’m getting where I want to be. On the interior I’m scoring well and am more under control than last year.
“I feel like my athleticism is starting to pick up after the work I did at the end of the summer. I want to make myself better, have a real good season and help make my guys better.”
Recently, Mobley took unofficial visits to UCLA and USC.
“USC is doing well this year. I played against some of their players last year like [De'Anthony Melton] and I think they’re a good program.”
Local San Diego State has prioritized Mobley and he’s also paying close attention to the Aztecs.
“I love the way they play defense and know some of their guys too, like Jeremy Hemsley,” he said.
Mobley says he’s taking his time in his recruitment but has an idea what he wants in a school.
“I’m looking for a good educational school as well as a school that will let me play and also wants to get out and run,” Mobley said.
