HCA: WSU lands a basketball recruit

USA TODAY Sports

Ken Bone added another point guard to the fold with Tramaine Isabell committing to the 2015 class.

The Washington State men's basketball team picked up its first verbal commitment for the 2015 recruiting class with Lakeside High School point guard Tramaine Isabell verbally committing to WSU on Monday. Yes, you read that correctly, the 2015 class.

Isabell will be a senior next season but is reportedly planning to attend prep school for one year before joining the Cougars in 2015. Ike Iroegbu is the only point guard currently on the roster who will still have eligibility in 2015. Isabell is 6'1 and appears to have the physical stature to play in the Pac-12 immediately, so with two more years of seasoning he should theoretically be prepared to play as a freshman.

He's not rated by Scout.com or Rivals.com while ESPN gives him a grade of 67. The ESPN scouting report says he has good length and athleticism, can break down defenses and is an active defender. He will probably need to refine his shot some as his current release makes Dexter Kernich-Drew look like he's Ray Allen.

Here are some extensive highlights from Isabell's junior season.

At least one person doesn't think WSU will finish last in the Pac-12 North. Take that California.

What happened?: When Leach took over, the former Texas Tech coach knew he had a long way to go to rebuild a program that had won just nine games in four seasons under previous coach Paul Wulff.

Four former WSU athletes, including Andrei Lintz and Darren Markle, received postgraduate scholarships from the Pac-12. Congrats to them.
