Early Entrant Decisions: Isby, Montana, Molson

Utah State guard DeAngelo Isby has decided to remain in the 2018 NBA draft and has signed with Darren White of Future Sports Management for representation, he tells ESPN’s Jeff Goodman (Twitter link). After spending his first two college seasons playing in the JUCO ranks, Isby joined the Aggies for his junior year, averaging 8.4 PPG and 2.9 RPG for the program. He’s not considered likely to be drafted.

Goodman has several more updates on early entrants making decisions on whether to stay in the draft or remove their names from consideration, so let’s round them up….

  • San Diego State junior forward Max Montana will be forgoing his final year of NCAA eligibility and keeping his name in the 2018 draft, tweets Goodman. Montana, who spent two seasons at San Diego State after one year with Indiana, has dual citizenship and intends to play overseas, Goodman notes.
  • Canisius guard Takal Molson will return to school for his sophomore year, he confirmed to Goodman (Twitter link). Molson declared for the draft along with backcourt mate Isaiah Reese, so we’ll see if both guards ultimately end up back at Canisius next season.
  • Florida Gulf Coast guard Zach Johnson is withdrawing from the 2018 draft, tweets Goodman. After averaging 16.1 PPG on .469/.392/.781 shooting in his junior year, Johnson will be transferring to Miami to finish his college career, Goodman adds.
  • NJIT junior forward Abdul Lewis will withdraw from the draft and return to school for his senior year, per Goodman (Twitter link). Lewis, who began his college career at South Alabama, averaged 12.0 PPG and 8.8 RPG last season.
