One of the top up and coming prospects in the NY2LA Association, Mineral Point (Wis.) 2020 shooting guard Isaac Lindsey has been making a name for himself since middle school. A sharpshooter with almost unreal consistency and unlimited range, Lindsey picked up his first two scholarship offers over the summer.

First to pull the trigger was South Dakota State and head coach T.J. Otzelberger, who currently has six Wisconsin natives on the roster for 2017-18.  “I know they have a great coaching staff,” Lindsey told NY2LA Sports. “Coach Otzelberger is amazing.  They talked to my dad when they offered. They like how I fit their program. They love me as a shooter and how I’m a leader on the floor.”

Green Bay followed suit in early August.  “I really like their style of play,” Lindsey said. “I know Coach Darner (Linc Darner) does a great job up there. They play fast and shoot a lot of 3’s. I like that.”

As a freshman, Lindsey averaged 18.2 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game.  Lindsey has attracted a mixture of high major and mid major programs going into his sophomore year. In fact, three Big Ten programs are in the midst of setting up a visit with the 6-foot-2 shooting guard. 

Iowa: “Iowa is going to come down and watch an open gym. They also want to set up a visit this fall.”

Purdue: “They just wanted to be in touch with me. They talked about their program. They also want to set up an unofficial with me.”

Wisconsin: “I think I’m going to be at the Michigan football game (November). I talked to them at camp and they went to a couple of my games this summer.”

Wake Forest, UW-Milwaukee, Portland, UC-Irvine, Oakland (MI), and Air Force are also expressing interest early on.  Currently enjoying the recruiting process, Lindsey wants to take things slow over the next few years.  “I need a coaching staff that will take care of us and make us better,” he said. “Finding good teammates too is a big part of it. Guys you want to hang out with for four years. Then the atmosphere of the school. The student section and the fans at the games, I want to play in a fun environment.” 

Lindsey plays with the Wisconsin Swing during the travel season.
