Summary:

Isaiah Mobley is a mobile, skilled big man that can shoot and pass the basketball.  Last year, he had a very good 2021 NCAA Tournament and combine showing.  While he is not an explosive athlete, he is a skilled player whose solid offensive skills and basketball IQ can help his team significantly on the floor.

This year, Mobley had a solid junior season for USC.  He especially played well early on as he showed off good shooting and playmaking skills, but he struggled a bit with his jump shot late in the year.  Currently, he is a borderline second round candidate for the 2022 draft.
