Every year, it seems that a new prospect miraculously emerges from the state of South Carolina. Just in the last three seasons, we’ve seen guys like Ja Morant, Aaron Nesmith, and Robert Braswell go from relative unknowns to must-have prospects. Now, Morant is set to be a lottery selection, Nesmith is preparing to breakout at Vandy, and Braswell is still just scratching the surface of his greatness. So who’s going to be the underdog to represent South Carolina’s Class of 2019? It might just be 6’7 Ishan White from Berkeley, as he continues to make his case as the most underrated player in the state.
White maintains a relatively calm demeanor, but his game is incredibly loud and allows him to overwhelm opponents on a frequent basis. He’s so aggressive on the court and plays with a phenomenal motor, which he utilizes nicely when running the floor or attacking the glass. White is a powerful athlete and possesses the ability to play inside or along the perimeter. He can shoot the ball from distance, but truly annihilates opponents from midrange-in, which also highlights his explosiveness and unique skillset. Right now, White holds five Division I offers: Winthrop, Presbyterian, Stetson, South Carolina State, and Oklahoma State. However, he received each of those during April of 2018, so it’ll be interesting to see if his offer list grows after this weekend, as coaches will certainly be in the building for their matchup against Cardinal Newman.
