Canisius College sophomore Isaiah Reese announced late Wednesday he will test the waters by placing his name in for consideration for this summer’s NBA draft, but will not hire an agent to keep his college eligibility.
“Isaiah and I have discussed this opportunity, and I support his decision,” Canisius head coach Reggie Witherspoon said. “He is going to take advantage of the NCAA rules that allow him to test his game at the highest level. This will be a good opportunity for him to learn more of what it takes for him to get to where he wants to be.”
The Miami, Fla., native became the first Canisius sophomore since 1994 to earn All-MAAC First-Team honors after he posted 16.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.2 steals per game in 33 contests for the Golden Griffins in 2017-18. The Golden Griffins went 21-12 and earned a share of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference regular season championship.
