COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M head coach Billy Kennedy confirmed Wednesday morning the addition of four-star prospect Isiah Jasey Killeen, Texas (Sunrise Christian [Wichita, Kan.]) to the Aggies' 2017 recruiting class.
“Isiah is a guy we’ve been recruiting for a long time,” Kennedy said. “He’s coming from one of the top programs in the country in Sunrise Christian, which plays a national schedule. He’s got a great ability to rebound above the rim and his toughness around the basket will make an instant impact on the court for us.”
Jasey is regarded as a four-star recruit by ESPN, which slots him as the eighth-best prospect in the Lone Star State. The 6-foot-9 center is considered an immediate impact player on the defensive end with his ability to rebound and block shots.
He played two years at Killeen Ellison High School before taking a spot at the Sunrise Christian Academy in Wichita, Kan., where he averaged 10 points and eight rebounds last season.
"Isiah has a tremendous motor and his work ethic is special," Sunrise Prep Luke Barnwell told Scout.com’s Brian Snow, "He is a high-level athlete and his immediate impact will be felt defensively blocking shots and rebounding. I think Isiah is just scratching the surface offensively and he will continue to get better."
He chose Texas A&M over Baylor, Oklahoma and Texas among others.
