THE RIVALS150: Class of 2014 - Class of 2015
For his junior year, five-star point guard Isaiah Briscoe enrolled in a new school. So far, the decision is paying off on the court and in the classroom.
A 6-foot-3 point guard who currently ranks No. 17 in the class of 2015, Briscoe feels like his move to Roselle (N.J.) Catholic is one that has been worthwhile.
"The transition has gone well," Briscoe told Rivals.com. "We have been playing better and we're still learning and getting more experienced with each other's game. As we play we are getting better and better.
"I think I have adjusted well. My grades are getting better and I'm building my attitude and leadership a bit better."
Capable of going on big scoring binges, Briscoe is an offensive minded lead guard. He can shoot from deep, uses his strength to attack the rim and is very good attacking to his right or left. Because of his ability to score, he is capable of sliding off the ball but Briscoe wants the ball in his hands on the next level.
"I think I see myself as more of a point guard," said Briscoe. "I like to make decisions with the ball in my hands.
"My height and my and my IQ are very good and I trust myself with the ball. I'm working on being more of a leader and trying to lead my young guys to a state championship."
This season, Briscoe says that he has taken in games at Rutgers, Seton Hall, and St. John's. All of them have offered and he also listed offers and interest from others including Arizona, Syracuse, Miami, Indiana, Michigan, UCLA, Ohio State, Baylor, Pittsburgh, DePaul, Cincinnati and Connecticut.
This spring and summer, Briscoe will play his last summer on the travel circuit with Jimmy Salmons' New Jersey Playaz. He's not in any rush to make a decision, but he could be cutting his list down to a bit more manageable number in the relatively near future.
"I'm still taking my time and I don't want to rush into anything too soon," said Briscoe. "I want to take my time and find a school that loves me. Also a place that plays my game with the pick and roll and open court bsketball. I also want to a coach who trusts me to run his team.
"Me and my dad have been talking about my list for a couple weeks so maybe we will cut it down here in a month or so. Probably down to 10 or maybe 12."
