Jonathan Isaac is one of the most intriguing and unique prospects in high school basketball today. His prep school IMG recently played in two games at the Flyin’ to the Hoop tournament. Although a foot injury kept him on the sidelines, I was able to catch up with Johnathan to discuss a number of topics. Here’s what he had to say:
