New name for 2011
ISU is one of ten schools vying for a visit from 6'7" Isaiah Williams of The Robinson Schhol (NJ). He burst on the scenes this summer at an AAU event. Here is a writeup after that event on him:
"Isaiah Williams ’11 - The Robinson School (NJ) – You may have not heard the name yet, but Williams is one of the quickest rising names in high school basketball. Isaiah, who played at Shabazz, will be a post-grad this year. It was the first ever camp of his career and he doesn’t have an AAU team at the moment but he went off. Everyone was amazed by his arrival on the grassroots scene and being a scoring machine as well as a defensive presence. The most amazing part was how Isaiah had no offers coming into the week. According to his high school coach, Vincent Robinson, Williams walked out of Reading with offers from “Quinnipiac, Rice, Manhattan, St. Peter’s, Morgan State, Maryland Eastern Shore, Coppin State, Rider, Wagner, Central Florida, Hofstra, Georgia State, DePaul, South Florida, Marshall, Binghampton, Albany, UNC-Charlotte, UNC Willmington and Robert Morris.” That is twenty offers in the span of three days. Could Isaiah Williams be the breakout star of the summer? "

Hard to find much on this kid but it does look like he is coming on strong.
Re: New name for 2011
Most I found was about his team in general and about the prep school (robinson school?) or where ever it is he is gonna play at this year. I think he's blowing up because he is 6'7" and can handle the rock like a guard. Played point a decent amount for his teams and has had some impressive scoring/defensive performances for his teams in playoffs/state tourney and in all-star games recently. I love his size and athleticism. Not sure we NEED him, as we need a PG... but I haven't seen him play to say he can't be a PG for us. Perhaps he's in a Penny Hardaway type of body - tall and lean with great handles/vision. Just a possibility.
