The Class of 2025 here in North Carolina is really starting to earn recognition, and one player of interest in the class is 2025 6'8 Isaac Ericksen. Ericksen is one that has made the necessary developments in his game over the last year, and really caught a lot more eyes this summer with his play for Team SW15H Elite.
When talking about his game, we had this to say:
'Ericksen really opened more eyes with his play and development, as he is a very intriguing prospect to keep an eye out for. As a long, wiry 6'8 prospect, he does a tremendous job in being a matchup nightmare with his outside shooting, his ability to handle and create off the bounce, and use his size to his advantage. I expect more schools to get involved with him.'
He is one that can be used in a variety of ways, and with his size and shot-making ability, there is a lot of intrigue about how he can be used on the court and what mismatches programs can create with him. We spoke to Ericksen recently about some of the latest, as he recently took a visit to Boston College. He broke down more about his visit and others that have been showing interest.
Boston College Visit:
'It was great, I got a chance to talk with all the coaches and tour the newer facilities,' Ericksen told Phenom Hoops. 'It was an amazing campus, and I had a great time meeting the coaches. I was able to tour the new facilities and watch the football game.'' In speaking more with Ericksen, he informed us that they are a program that has been in touch before and that he thinks they will be planning to come down to a high school workout of his.'
Ericksen had a great opportunity to talk to Coach Grant while on the visit, as he talked more about how the staff really likes to build a strong connection with their players and that having the right people in the program is both huge on and off the court.
We also asked him more about what other schools have been showing interest. Ericksen reported that schools like Northwestern, Notre Dame, Charleston, Furman, Appalachian State, Clemson, Liberty, Arkansas State, VMI, Mercer, High Point, and Wake Forest have shown interest his way.
