6'8" small forward from Wisconsin.  Also has a younger brother (I think) who is class of 2023.

Compare this to the Women's Basketball Recruiting thread that has 177 posts in a month. Pretty stunning.

In any case, a couple major SG targets - Langston Love and Matthew Cleveland - both committed elsewhere recently after listing us in their top 5/6. Having Isa Silva in the fold already is incredible, and we are still going hard after SF Harrison Ingram and C Ryan Mutombo (yes, THAT Mutombo) among others.

Not much to be said about '22 just yet, but it's clear the coaches have really hammered home the importance of having true PGs on the roster in their late signing of Michael O'Connell, signing Silva in '21, and having already offered four in '22 (Dylan Andrews, Aidan Mahaney, Mark Armstrong, Eli King).

Not recruiting but Isaac White goes pro in Australia




An offer I wasn’t aware of

FYI
Multiple Stanford connections for 2022 4* SF Colin Smith (we have offered); his older sister is incoming WVB freshman Leilah Smith, and he attends the same HS as aforementioned stud '21 recruit Harrison Ingram. His first P5 offer was from Kansas, and that tells me he's probably pretty damn good.

Fitzmorris Redux (with better basketball upside).
Evidently King has also been offered a football scholarship.




Could he be Teyo Johnson redux?

Nice details on Isa Silva's recruitment efforts. For starters, he talks to Harrison Ingraham almost every day and describes him as "one of my closest friends in the basketball world." Silva is also targeting Mutombo as well as "a couple of overseas prospects."

Looks like Taine Murray, a 6'5" SG from New Zealand, is one of said overseas prospects. He's deciding between us, Maryland, and UVA:

Also, speaking of overseas prospects, Oscar Da Silva's younger brother Tristan signed with Colorado MBB in the '20 class.

True but “all” = one CB from 3 months ago.
Stanford target Taine Murray (from New Zealand) committed to UVA last night. 3 star PG Tyler Simon committed to Harvard yesterday as well but I don't think the staff was really after him.
