Miami received an important commitment on Wednesday as the Hurricanes landed four-star guard Isaiah Wong. A consensus top-100 player in the Class of 2019, the 6-foot-2 Wong is considered the No. 71 overall prospect in the Rivals national rankings.
More importantly than Wong’s ranking, he’s the first high school prospect to commit to Miami since they were linked in the FBI’s investigation last season. While other programs like Arizona and Louisville have recently started to land quality high school prospects, even in the midst of uncertainty, Miami didn’t land a high school prospect from the Class of 2018.
Wong, Miami’s first commitment since the Class of 2017 from the high school level, gets the Hurricanes back in the mix for top national talent as he should come in and be an immediate contributor. As a taller guard who can defend, handle, pass and score, Wong could be a nice fit alongside a smaller guard in Chris Lykes.
