Isaiah Mobley

Top 35 SoCal 2019 PF Isaiah Mobley being highly recruited early

Scout's 32nd ranked 2019 prospect, Isaiah Mobley, is having a strong start to his sophomore season. Here's the latest on the four-star power forward's recruitment.

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.”

There are a long list of schools involved in Mobley’s recruitment, amongst them being Alabama, San Diego State, Stanford, UCLA and USC.

Recently, Mobley took unofficial visits to UCLA and USC.

“I like the way UCLA is playing right now,” Mobley said. “I know they have a great player in Lonzo Ball and T.J. Leaf is doing really well; he played for the program I’m with now (Compton Magic).

“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.
