Earlier this week, Barton College (D2) star G/F Isaiah Reddish entered the transfer portal. Reddish had a phenomenal career with Barton. This season he averaged 23PPG and 10RPG, his season high was 40 points against Erskine. In the 2019-2020 season, Reddish averaged 21PPG and 9RPG. He’s shown improvement over the course of the season and would be a grad transfer where he’d contribute immediately to a Division 1 team.
Reddish talked his current recruitment with Hoop Scoop Media:
What programs have shown interest since you entered the portal?
“The Citadel, UNC Asheville, Florida Atlantic, Kennesaw State, Coastal Carolina, Mount St Mary’s, New Mexico State, UIC, NC Central, Dartmouth, Radford, South Alabama, Queens (NC), Montana, Stetson, Robert Morris, Cal State Bakersfield, and Longwood.”
How would you describe your game as a player?
“My game is very versatile. I can defend, rebound, score, and assist. I can put the ball on the floor, make reads off screens, dive on the floor for loose balls, etc.”
When do you want to make a decision?
“I want to make a decision when the time is right and I feel it in my gut, maybe early-mid April.”
What led to your decision to enter the transfer portal?
“What led to my decision to enter the transfer portal is that I will be a grad transfer. I played 4 years at Barton and I thank them for the opportunity and believing in me and being the only school to give me a scholarship out of high school. I just felt like it was time and that I left my legacy here and I want to chase my dream of producing at a high level at a D1 school.”
What are the biggest things you look for when choosing a school?
“I want to be coached like a pro and learn the game more, develop my game, and to win. I want to have a great relationship with the coaches and players and just learn how to continue to develop as a man and also as a pro. I want to have fun with the game I love.”
What would you bring to the team that lands you?
“A wing that can do anything on the floor, switch with almost any position, score in the high post and mid post, facilitate, communicate, and just bring energy. Also push the tempo and I’m a player who can play above the rim. I’m a tenacious rebounder and I just love to compete.”
