Isaiah White is an athletic, skilled forward that could project into a 3 and D role in the NBA. He previously played at Salt Lake Community College and at Utah Valley, and he then transferred to play for USC this season. He’s had his ups and downs over the course of his collegiate career, but he is playing his best basketball right now in the tournament.
He played really well in the 2021 NCAA Tournament. There, he scored 13 points and made 3 threes in a win over Kansas, and he also scored 22 points and made 4 threes in a win over Oregon. This season though, he’s really struggled, and he has not shot the ball well at all this year. He will need to regain his shooting touch to where it used to be. He is an unlikely bet to be drafted, and he will need to shoot the ball much better in the meantime.
