Rutgers Hoops, Coach Eddie Jordan Land Big Man Issa Thiam

Rutgers coach Eddie Jordan picked up a big-time commitment Monday against stiff competition. The Scarlet Knights landed their third 2016 commitment in Las Palmas (Spain) Canarias Basketball Academy forward Issa Thiam.

Rutgers just got bigger with Issa Thiam and a Monday verbal commitment to head coach Eddie Jordan. Thiam, who is an athletic 6-foot-9 forward, chose Rutgers over St. John's and represents the third commitment in the 2016 class.

Thiam hails from Las Palmas (Spain) Canarias Basketball Academy, the same program that produced injured center Shaquille Doorson

Thiam joins Maishe Dailey and Jahlil Tripp in the Rutgers recruiting class. Assistant coach Greg "Shoes" Vetrone was his lead recruiter.
