Isaiah Todd is one of the most electric high school basketball players in the country. His versatility at 6’10 is in a league of its own.
Todd can not only shoot from outside with consistency, he is also completely capable of creating his own shot off the dribble. He is even willing to bang in the paint and mean enough to make an impact.
Todd really is the total package.

Currently, ESPN and 247 sports both have Isaiah Todd ranked as a top three power forward in the class of 2020.
He led his John Marshall (VA) team to a state championship last season as a sophomore, but has transferred to Trinity Academy in Raleigh, North Carolina for his junior year.
In a blog series with USA Today, Todd recently updated how the recruiting process is going.
“On the recruiting side, Kentucky has been reaching out consistently, Maryland has too, Oklahoma State reaches out consistently, Texas, Florida offered recently and I’ve had a lot of other schools reaching out.” Todd wrote.
Hearing the Cats name mentioned first is clearly a positive sign for the Kentucky coaching staff. That being said, I anticipate it will be a long and uphill battle for any coach that has his sights set on landing Isaiah Todd.
Every school in the country is going to be aiming at land this gifted five-star recruit. He currently holds offers from over a dozen schools, including Kansas and Villanova.
But many think the University of North Carolina has the best shot at landing Isaiah Todd, in large part, due to his recent decision to transfer and play his junior year of high school in Raleigh, NC at Trinity. This will give Roy Williams and Hubert Davis additional opportunity to get in Todd’s ear.
I see Isaiah Todd as the type of player that can fit into any team or any system. By the time he arrives on a college campus he will be able to play nearly any position on offense.
This will be a recruit that you will want to keep your eye on.
