At the beginning of each new year, Phenom Hoops works to assemble a series of articles centered around unsigned senior prospects. Last season, over one hundred players from North Carolina went on to play at the Division I, II, III or NAIA levels, and that number looks likely to continue increasing with the current senior class. Typically, we take a closer look at guys who are overlooked and underrated, and today's edition will highlight Isaac Farah of Fishers High School.
We've seen some random and very intriguing prospects walk through our doors for Phenom 150 camps but Farah was easily in a unique situation of his own. He traveled from Indiana to South Carolina just to attend our camp, which proved to be an incredibly positive move for his growth and long-term recruitment. Farah was utterly dominant. He did whatever he wanted against solid competition, attacking the basket, controlling the offense from the post, destroying anyone who entered the paint defensively or tried to compete with him on the glass. Farah was one of the most college-ready prospects we've seen at their first 150 camp, and it should ultimately find him a place at the next level. He's long, fluid, and displays excellent instincts on both ends of the floor. It would be surprising if he weren't successful going forward.
Farah recently made the trip down to Hartsville, South Carolina to attend our SC Phenom 150 camp, where we stated: 'Finishing up, we look at a player that was utterly dominant on both sides of the ball throughout camp, Isaac Farah. He's a long, athletic, versatile forward/post prospect with a quality amount of skill for his size/position. Farah controlled the interior on both ends exceptionally well, rebounding everything, consistently protecting the rim, and scoring nearly every possession. He runs the floor really well in transition and possesses nice fluidity for his size/position. Farah also highlighted quality vision and toughness out of the post, which allowed him to dictate the offensive action quite easily. Next in his development process is working on the use of his off-hand, as it would make him even more prepared for the next level. Coach Raye on Farah: 'Isaac is a Division I college player that is a very solid big man. Isaac can and does play both ends of the court. His shot blocking and rebounding is one that is going to help whatever college he attends. He can score at will and punch on you if you stand in his way. I am very impressed.' Farah was undeniably impressive in each performance and should continue to see an influx of college interest/offers as a result of his showing at camp.'
Upon leaving the camp, Farah immediately saw a massive boost in his recruitment. Division I and Division II programs began to take the long, athletic forward more seriously. Although his production wasn't incredible during the high school season, it's clear that he possesses all the necessary tools to have a very nice career in the collegiate ranks.
