UCLA, Florida State Offer Isaiah Briscoe (UPDATED)
Isaiah Briscoe has added two more high-major offers.
The 6-foot-3 2015 St. Benedict’s Prep guard picked up offers from UCLA and Florida State, George Briscoe told SNY.tv.
“UCLA, when they come calling you definitely have to listen and weigh your options, absolutely,” Isaiah’s father told SNY.tv. “We definitely plan on making a visit to the West Coast. We definitely want to visit UCLA.”
He added that Florida State had offered about a week ago.
Isaiah Briscoe, who went off for 35 points Sunday in a three-point loss to Rashad Vaughn and Wisconsin Playground at the Nike EYBL stop in Minnesota, also holds offers from Syracuse, Florida, Arizona, Ohio State and Indiana, among others.
Current UCLA guard Kyle Anderson also played for the Playaz and will be a sophomore next season.
Briscoe plans to visit Florida in late June, his father recently told SNY.tv.
No date is set because Briscoe has other commitments coming up.
Briscoe averaged 15.1 points, 4.6 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 2.3 steals for the 32-2 Gray Bees and helped them reach the ESPN National High School Invitational final, losing to Montverde (Fla.) Academy.
