Isaiah Briscoe becomes fourth Kentucky Wildcat to enter 2017 draft

Sophomore guard Isaiah Briscoe has entered the 2017 draft and will hire an agent. Briscoe is forfeiting his final two years of college eligibility to join teammates De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk and Bam Adebayo in the draft.

Briscoe likely declared as a result of John Calipari bringing in another top five recruiting class that may have pushed Briscoe from the starting rotation.

The 6’2 guard is likely a second round to an undrafted selection in this years loaded class. He will likely have to earn an opportunity on a roster through strong summer league.

The developmental league is Briscoe’s most likely path to the NBA. A path that may be suited for him as once he develops a better jump shot and becomes a better pure passer, he may be useful for a team. He has been Kentucky’s swiss army knife for the past two seasons doing a bit of everything on the court.

Briscoe already provides tremendous value as an athletic combo guard capable of defending multiple positions. His toughness makes up for his size.

Briscoe averaged 12.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists for the Wildcats this year.
