Eddie Jordan is slowly filling his recruiting class. And today, he got a much needed piece of the puzzle.
2016 F Issa Thiam (Canarias Basketball Academy) has committed to Rutgers, sources told @CBSSports.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) February 1, 2016
Issa Thiam, a 6'8' wing with a propensity to shoot the three and play defense, selected Rutgers over St. John's and Seton Hall. While still a project, Thiam has a high upside. Thiam comes out of the Canarias Basketball Academy out of the Canary Islands, an area often mined by Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard.
Rivals rates Thiam as a 3 star prospect. When in the US earlier for a tournament, Thiam showed a prominent three point shot and was noticed by several recruiting experts.
After the commitments of Maishe Dailey, Jahlil Tripp, and Thiam, Rutgers currently has one open scholarship.
