Isaac Humphries to Kentucky: Wildcats Land 4-Star Center Prospect

Published by Bleacher Report on Thu, 20 Aug 2015

Isaac Humphries is bringing his massive size and basketball skills to Kentucky.According to ESPN's Jeff Borzello, he gave the Wildcats his commitment.Per 247 Sports, Humphries is a 4-star recruit and the No. 4 center in the 2016 class. He's listed at 7'0" and 245 pounds but is still new to basketball in this country. According to Ben Roberts of theHerald-Leader, Humphries moved to the United States from Australia in December 2014. His head coach atLa Lumiere in Indiana,Brad Johnstin, noted the then-16-year-old was getting used to the speed of guards."There's better guard play here," Johnstin said. "It's more aggressive. He'll get used to the speed, and he'll be fine. It's everyone getting used to having him here and not settling so much. Everyone is on the same page about that."Yet even with his lack of experience against American competition, scouts were raving about Humphries' potential. Here's what Scout.com's Evan Daniels told Roberts about the big man:You can see the tools. He's not a guy who's going to wow you from an athletic standpoint. But he's tough, he's hard-nosed, he rebounds his area, he's got very good hands and very good touch. He can also face up and make a jump shot, and he's a guy who has a lot of potential as a post scorer.That ability to score in the post is huge in college basketball because it's rare to find. Look at the impact Jahlil Okafor had for Duke last season or how valuable Mitch McGary was for Michigan during its run to the title game in 2013.Humphries still has plenty of development ahead of him, but when the raw ingredients are in place, the right college coach has the ability to piece them all together.
