Isaac Humphries’ sophomore season hasn’t gone the way he expected. He’s playing more minutes, scoring more points and grabbing more rebounds, but he has not played with confidence.
“I expected a different season,” Humphries told Joe Mussato of SEC Country. “I expected completely to not go this way, but that happens. I’m just trying to push through everything I can and do as much as I can when I get out there.”
If he can’t push through, he could take his talents elsewhere.
“It’s too early to say what anyone’s going to do,” Humphries said. “Like, I don’t know what my path will be next year. Obviously me being the right age to finally enter the draft, but there’s a lot of options. I don’t know anything yet. I’m trying to finish the season, finish March Madness because it’s about the team right now. It’s not about me. I’ve gotta finish that out and then kinda weigh my options. But Kentucky’s obviously a great place for development. I’m not gonna look past that at all.”
Humphries’ comments are surprising, but honest. He’s disappointed in his play and is willing to do whatever it takes to push through his sophomore slump.
