Crenshaw on Isitua
"He's a big, athletic kid who will immediately fill a need for us with his ability to protect the rim and run the floor from the 5-spot. He's a tremendous rebounder and is learning to finish in close with either hand. He's skilled, but he's only going to get better with his work in the weight room and as we work on him in skill development. He's another kid that's going to be a building block for the future of the program."
