Saint Louis added a quality graduate transfer guard on Friday as Drexel’s Tramaine Isabell pledged to the Billikens.

Returning to the state of Missouri after starting his college basketball career with two years at Mizzou, the 6-foot-1 Isabell had a breakout junior season with the Dragons in which he averaged 21.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game.

Immediately eligible for next season, Isabell was one of the most productive guards left on the transfer market as this is a great get for head coach Travis Ford and Saint Louis. The Billikens have a talented team coming back for the 2018-19 season as Isabell gives them a noted scorer and a much-needed perimeter shooting threat.

Contenders in the Atlantic 10 next season, Saint Louis has a lot of promising pieces returning, including Javon Bess, Jordan Goodwin and Hasahn French. With the Billikens also securing a quality recruiting class — including in-state forward Carte’Are Gordon — expectations are going to be high for the upcoming season.
