Thomas Jefferson Campus has been responsible for producing notable talent, all of which have the traditional Brooklyn, NY toughness. 6’5″ junior forward Isaiah Deas looks to keep that tradition alive and well.

“He might be the best player on our team,” Jefferson Head Coach Lawrence “Bud” Pollard candidly told

The 6’5″ forward, who transfered from Bishop Loughlin high school, is potentially another match-up problem in the frontcourt. Deas can play all five spots on the floor and finds ways to get it done. Coach Pollard believes that Deas is one of the keys to how far Jefferson progresses up the playoff food chain this season.

On Sunday, we got a chance to see the long and lanky forward in action as the Orange Wave scrimmage against Christ the King, the defending New York State champions. Deas played a solid game, showing the ability to finish at the rim well.

The junior displayed an impressive midrange game and has a tremendous upside. Deas currently has no offers but look for that to change as he has an impact on Jefferson’s high school season.
