Over the past few weeks, Isaiah Briscoe has worked out for several NBA teams and, in an interview with Kyle Tucker, his father says he still hasn’t made up his mind whether or not to stay in the NBA Draft or return to UK for his sophomore season.
Interestingly, George Briscoe says his son lost his confidence during his freshman year at UK, but that confidence has returned in his NBA tryouts:
“I have to figure out why my son is who he is right now in that NBA setting, but at Kentucky he’s not,” the father said. “He’s getting back to being Isaiah now and I’m enjoying it. He goes into some of these workouts with this guy and that guy who are supposed to be first-round picks and does well.”
Briscoe has another week before he has to make his decision and his dad says they plan to work out for a few more teams, hinting that if “something came through,” like an offer from a team to draft him, his son would listen; however, he made it clear his family still loves Kentucky and has “much respect for Coach Cal.”
