USC’s Isaiah Collier Entering 2024 NBA Draft

USC freshman Isaiah Collier is entering the 2024 NBA draft, he tells Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

According to Wojnarowski, Collier will be represented by agent B.J. Armstrong of Wasserman. Since Armstrong isn’t on the list of NCAA-certified agents, that means Collier will be forgoing his remaining college eligibility and going pro this spring.

Once listed as the top prospect on ESPN’s big board of 2024 prospects, Collier now ranks 11th following an up-and-down season that was interrupted for several weeks in January by a fractured hand.

Collier finished strong after returning from that injury, posting full-season averages of 16.3 points, 4.3 assists, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.5 steals in 30.0 minutes per game across 27 contests. The 6’5″ guard made 49.0% of his shot attempts from the floor, but just 33.8% of his threes and 67.3% of his free throw tries.

According to ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, Collier is highly regarded by NBA evaluators due to his “combination of size, changing speeds, live-dribble passing and bully-ball finishing.” A former No. 1 high school recruit, Collier is one of the few players in the 2024 draft class with legitimate star-level upside, Givony adds.
