UVa Basketball Gets Verbal Commitment from Isaiah Wilkins

Posted: Updated:

The UVa basketball team has gotten a verbal commitment from 3-star power forward Isaiah Wilkins from Georgia for the class of 2014.

The Greater Atlanta Christian standout is the step son of NBA legend Dominique Wilkins.   Isaiah Wilkins chose UVa over Miami, Memphis and many others.

Wilkins told CavsCorner.com, "The facilities, the coaches, the team," he explained, "it's like a big family. In my mind, I just knew. I had my mind made up on Saturday but I wanted to sleep on it. My family came up with me and so I talked with them and I talked to my high school coach. They were all for it. I felt like, 'This is the spot to be. This is my home."

Wilkins is the second commit for the class of 2014 along with 4-star recruit B.J. Stith.
