"I'm mostly known for my scoring ability, but I do a good job of a little bit of everything on the court," Isby said. "That what allows me to be versatile and play multiple positions. I would say more scoring, passing, rebounding [are strengths]."
Isby averaged 15.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in 30 games as a sophomore (28 starts). He scored 20 points or more nine times, including two games where he passed the 30-point plateau. He shot 45.9 percent from the field and 33.9 percent from 3-point range.
He posted very similar scoring production as a freshman. Isby averaged 15 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game while shooting 46.3 percent overall and 30.8 percent on 3-pointers. He also registered nine 20-point games as a freshman which included one 34-point performance.
USU is not allowed to comment on Isby until after he has signed a letter of intent, but Isby said he first heard from the coaching staff early this fall after a scrimmage/showcase at Wabash which USU's director of player development Kyle Taylor attended.
Isby visited the USU campus in the fall prior to the start of the Aggies season at the same time as another incoming junior college transfer, Dwayne Brown. Isby said the two initially met during the summer at a JUCO showcase event in Atlanta, Ga. Isby said he had interest from Murray State, Milwaukee and Arkansas State, but he did not go on another official visit after coming to USU.
"When I went on my visit the players were great," Isby said. "They took me in and accepted me as if I was already on the team. That played a major role. Even when I committed, they reached out to me and that just made me feel at home already."
The Aggies were one of the most-accurate shooting teams in the Mountain West this past season. They ranked second in field goal percentage and first in 3-point shooting percentage. Thought they'll lose the team's leading scorer Jalen Moore (17 points per game, 48 percent shooting, 43 percent 3-point percentage) to graduation as well as guard Shane Rector (8.0 ppg, 43 percent, 33 percent 3-pointers).
Isby said his 3-point shooting has improved since he came to Wabash, but he didn't credit it to any mechanical changes. Instead he said his improved shooting percentage has been a result of better shot selection. He also expressed excitement about playing off of McEwen.
"I just feel like me and Koby could get along well," Isby said. "We could complement each other's game, possibly be one of the best backcourts in the Mountain West."
