September 14th Update
As a follow up to the update from earlier in the summer Isaac messaged PHD recently about the schools he is hearing from the most. The 6-foot-8/6-foot-9 St. Thomas More big man has a number of schools that made contact but so far he is hearing from three most often.
“Yes I have heard from some schools,” Isaac told PHD. “The top three in no particular order would probably be ACU (who we believe to be Arizona Christian University), South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, and Lehigh University.”
SDSM&T is the local school that makes sense as it's very close to where Isaac lives and Isaac wants to be an engineer. Their program has players from 11 different states from around the country as well as two European talents who have all come to the school to get their specific engineering degree and play basketball.
This summer Isaac was in Arizona for a basketball camp or two and that is where he was seen by Arizona Christian as well as some other schools down there. After they saw his potential many have sent initial contact.
Lehigh is an east coast D1 program that recruits the Midwest regularly for size, skilled talented, and strong academic students.
The 6-foot-8/6-foot-9 big man is at the top of our prospect list because he has fantastic size and agility at his age. The type of size, agility, and growing skill set that will have division one programs looking his way, eventually.
Isaac Kortemeyer was unavailable for comment but PHD has learned that the school that is recruiting him the most and really the only team showing strong interest right now, it's South Dakota School of Mines.
A big reason for that is Isaac lives in Rapid City, South Dakota and playing in spring and summer Grassroots events requires the type of travel that most get on planes for. And those are the closest events!
Isaac and St. Thomas More teammate Jake Satter will join Matt Cartwright, JP Costello, and others to form one heck of a South Dakota Attack 16s this summer. Isaac has played with them in one event already this spring we are told.
We are also told that Isaac was in Arizona at a basketball camp recently and played exceptionally well. The people watching and evaluating there all expect Isaac to start grabbing division one interest soon, just like PHD does.
The one big thing with Kortemeyer? The school better have a strong engineering program because that is what he wants to be and that is very important to his college choice.
Isaac helped St. Thomas More back to the state tournament yet again although they dropped their first round contest.
