Four-star power forward Isaiah Mobley, the son of new USC basketball assistant Eric Mobley, announced his commitment to the Trojans on Friday.
USC basketball’s stellar recruiting efforts over the past few years only seem to be continuing into the 2019 cycle with four-star power forward Isaiah Mobley committing to the Trojans.
Mobley is the son of new USC assistant coach Eric Mobley, who was hired on in late March to fill the spot vacated by deposed assistant Tony Bland.
The link to Eric’s sons, Isaiah and Even, who are both elite high school basketball stars, was not lost when he was hired and that speculation seems to have paid off.
Mobley’s pledge comes on the heels of five-star center Onyeka Okongwu committing to the Trojans earlier this week.
The two commitments were tipped off a week ago by basketball analyst Dave Miller, who predicted even more good things to come for the Trojans.
He projects the Trojans to land 2020 five-star center Evan Mobley, joining his brother, as well as five-star small forward Johnny Juzang of Harvard Westlake.
If Miller is correct on those four additions, USC would have two Top 35 players in each of it’s next two classes.
As it stands, the Trojans have at least one in the elder Mobley, who ranks 31st in the 247Sports composite.
The Rancho Christian-product stands 6-foot-9, 220 pounds and is the sixth-best power forward in the class.
Mobley is the second commitment for USC’s 2019 class, which now figures to outdo the Trojans’ special 2018 haul. Andy Enfield and company secured signatures from three Top 75 players in that group: five-star shooting guard Kevin Porter, four-star guard Elijah Weaver and four-star power forward J’Raan Brooks.
Though the Trojans lost a host of key figures following the 2017-18 season, they are now in position to thrive going forward thanks to major recruiting victories.
