Good fit for him, should get lots of PT

They need scorers. They play a simple defensive scheme and love to spread the floor and do isolation offense.

I really soured on Shayok last year in our system, but I believe in part that was because our staff is still learning itself how to coach 4-out sets. ISU has a well-established offensive system that they can plug Shayok into, and I do not think their defense uses the help-and-recover that Shayok struggled with.

Wish him the absolute best. I always want players to be able to take control over their lives and am unhappy about the rules that limit player movement. He is making a sacrifice to sit a year then play a year, but it should also better prepare him for his final professional career.
