Mark Adams and Co. Get Their First Commit for the Class of 2022

On Thursday night the Red Raiders got a commit for 2022 from Coronado (NV) 4-star Point Guard Richard “Pop Pop” Isaacs to get this recruiting class off to a bang!

Isaacs is ranked as the No. 31 player in the nation for the Class of 2022, and the No. 6 PG as well as the No. 1 player in the state of Nevada.

Just watching some of his film, Tech fans are going to this guy and what he will bring to the program.

Isaacs is a game-changer who is not afraid to pull up and knock down shots in your face and make those big plays in big situations.

He is a floor general who knows how to run the offense and can take over a game with his driving skills and his outside shooting.

Tech fans will love that in his past two years, he has shot 41% & 44% from three-point range. And with a good shooting point guard, you need someone who can make that electric game passes and Isaacs can do just that.

One of the biggest things is how he takes over the offense and controls the tempo, if he wants to push it he can, and you see his acceleration to get to the basket.

He also has exceptional court vision to find guys in the lane cutting or for alley-oops which as Tech fans we all love to see.

I could definitely see Isaacs coming in and be a starter from day one as a freshman. He is one of the top players in the class and only continuing to get better as he goes.

This is a great first addition for Mark Adams and his staff to start this recruiting process proving that he can recruit and bring big-time players to Lubbock!

I like Isaacs. He is unselfish, intelligent and efficient. All things a point guard must be. I like that Adams wants a player like this seemingly much more than Beard desires. Pop Pop has the kind of talent that will make everyone around him better.
