Isiah Umipig

Just found out he is one of the Top Fil-Am prospect playing in U.S.A, standing at 6'1" and has a score first mentality, he average 13pts 2.3 ast and 2.3 rebs on a 33.6minutes per game, he transfered from Cal State Fullerton to Seattle Redhawks

only seen some youtube clips of him, has anyone seen him play?, i see a good shooting stroke, and any comparison?

His size is not good if he is

His size is not good if he is a score first guy, so one big knock on him is that he is an undersized 2, how good is he athletically? You said he has a good stroke so I think his pro comparison is Terrell Stoglin IMO. He's gonna have a tough time making it to the league as undersized 2 guards are a dime a dozen now days

Maybe but he will have to

Maybe but he will have to work hard to separate himself from the pack; Decorated guys like Kalin Lucas and Dee Bost weren't even drafted, heck even Shabazz Napier is a fringe second round pick.

It looks like offense is his

It looks like offense is his strong suit so he should focus on improving his ball handling and passing, hit the weights, and do agility drills to get more athletic he may have to play point guard at the next level due to his size. He's a logs hit but I could see a team giving him a look after he spends a couple seasons in Europe or the D League

I played with him today

I played with him today actually.. He's a smart PG with a knock down jumper. I could honestly see him making it. He's pretty strong and plays really solid defense. He just knows how to run a team. I think he was used more as a spark plug at Fullerton, but I think he will be seen more as a "floor general" next year.
