Five-star point guard Isaiah Briscoe has decided that the road to the NBA goes through Kentucky.
Briscoe made his decision to go to Kentucky in 2015 back in November, choosing the school over St. John’s and the University of Connecticut.
"Everything about Kentucky made me want to attend the school,” Briscoe said, according to NJ.com. “Right now, coach John Calipari has a machine going on with getting point guards to the NBA like John Wall and Eric Bledsoe and Derrick Rose. I could see myself in that mold and being the next point guard to come out of Kentucky."
The New York Post reports that Briscoe joins company like Karl-Anthony Towns and Michael-Kidd Gilchrist as players who moved to Kentucky after playing high school basketball in New Jersey. Briscoe plays for Roselle Catholic High School.
And Briscoe was just named as a player in the elite McDonald’s All-American game in Chicago in April. The Courier-Journal reports that Briscoe is Kentucky’s 53rd McDonald’s All-American overall, and the 21st since Calipari was hired in 2009.
