Oregon Lands Top-Rated Jennah Isai

by Anthony Ray | Posted on Tuesday, June 1st, 2021

Valley Vista High School's gifted 5-foot-11 rising senior guard/forward Jennah Isai is among the nation's elite prospects in the 2022 Class - currently rated by ESPN as one of the top 30 prospects in the country. With many high-major Division-I offers on the table for herself, it has been a major deal to see which college program would ultimately land the skilled prospect. With many schools to choose from and many basketball enthusiasts ultimately waiting for her decision, Isai has given an early verbal commitment to the University of Oregon and their coaching staff.

Isai's decision to become an Oregon Duck is huge, when you consider the success of the Oregon basketball program, and their tremendous affiliation with Nike. Isai is currently one of Nike's top EYBL prospects, so it is fitting selection for Isai and her family.

Isai decided on the University of Oregon, over a long list of offers that included such programs as ArizonaMichiganOregon, UCLA, LSU, Florida, Texas, Georgetown, Cal, St. John's, Texas Tech, Georgia, Colorado, UNLV, BYU, Mississippi StateCal State Fullerton and Columbia.

Isai is currently rated by ESPN among the elite prospects in America's 2022 Class, as she currently checks in at #35 overall in the rankings. Isai joins fellow 2022 classmate and club teammate Kennedy Basham on the list. Basham is currently rated among the Top 50 prospects nationally (#44) by ESPN.

Isai is a different prospect with size, an advanced skillset and an aggressive playing style that simply makes her look different than her opposition. She is a unique looking prospect, and backs it up with a flat out ability to ball. When she is healthy, Jennah Isai is a special prospect, as she is very skilled with excellent size on her frame - able to play as a guard or forward with excellent versatility. She has an advanced skillset that allows her to play as a guard or forward, and is able to make shots from the standstill position on the court, or off the dribble, on the move. She is a very good shooter of the basketball with excellent range on her shot and a quick release. She is also able to create for herself and others off the dribble at a high rate, and is shifty off the dribble - changing directions nicely and finishing at the basket, around and over defenders.

Jennah can play inside and out, which will benefit her nicely over time, especially in the collegiate ranks. She has the game and skillset that suggests that she will become a pro over time, with continued focus and hard work. She is a strong rebounder and also competes hard. She is also a terrific passer, that passes the ball with either hand, and sees the floor well. Her versatility makes her difficult to defend, and helps her makes teammates around her better.

Isai is still recovering from a knee injury from last season that caused her to get surgery and miss much of her junior season. She also missed many games from a similar injury as a sophomore. She is almost full recovered and is currently working hard to prepare for a strong performance this summer on the EYBL Circuit.

Congratulations to Jennah and her family on this amazing accomplishment from our Arizona Preps' staff, and best of luck to her in all of her future endeavors, as she has helped to raise the overall level of girl's basketball in the state.
