NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. — Isaiah Stewart has had an eventful few weeks.
He has just returned from Argentina where he won a gold medal with the USA U17 team in the FIBA U17 World Championship. Like several of his U17 teammates, including Vernon Carey Jr., Scottie Barnes, Wendell Moore and Jeremy Roach, Stewart also flew directly to Peach Jam from Argentina.
“We definitely played great and took the medal back home,” Stewart said.
After Peach Jam, Stewart, one of the most sought after big man in the Class of 2019, plans to cut his list to five schools from 10.
“Hopefully get it down to five and schedule my visits and get it done by then,” the 6-foot-9 forward from La Lumiere (IN) said Thursday at the Peach Jam where he’s playing with the Albany City Rocks. “I’m waiting for Peach Jam to be over, I’m focusing on this. Hopefully after that I’ll start focusing more on cutting my five down.”
