Four-Star 2025 Guard Schedules Official Visit with Pitt



This week, Jeff Capel extended a scholarship offer to Isaiah Denis, a 6-foot-5 guard out of Davidson, North Carolina.

One of Pitt basketball’s most recent targets has scheduled an official visit to check out the Panthers’ campus, facilities, and city.

Isaiah Denis, a class-of-2025 guard out of Davidson Day in North Carolina, will be on campus for an official visit starting on Aug. 30, he confirmed to Pittsburgh Sports Now. Jamie Shaw of On3 was first to report.

Denis is a four-star prospect on 247 Sports who is ranked as the No. 43 player in the class.

“I first was talking to Coach Milan [Brown],” Denis told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “He reached out to me after the live period in Indianapolis for [Nike EYBL] session three. We just started to build that relationship since then, and he told me that they really like my game.”

Denis then mentioned that a former Pitt player’s name came up in recruiting conversations pretty quickly. A player that has a similar frame to Denis and one who may become a key recruiting pitch for the Panthers staff going forward.

“He [Brown] can see me coming in for the 2025 class kind of in that Carlton Carrington role,” Denis said. “They felt like I had some similarities to his game. They thought I would be a good piece to come in and kind of fill that type of role that he had.”

“That’s very important to me because I feel like he [Carrington] played in a certain role where I’m playing right now on my AAU team and my high school team, playing on and off the ball,” Denis said. “Just showing that versatility to do both and be a combo guard which is usually what guards are in the NBA now. Most guards are like combo guards, they are very versatile. Them saying that I can come in and be that type of guy, and I see myself playing that type of way when I get to the college level as well, so that’s big for me.”

After Brown set the table, Pitt head coach Jeff Capel came in and offered Denis.

“Two days ago, Coach Capel called me,” he continued. “He just started to build that relationship with me as the head coach and wanted to let me know that they were offering me a scholarship to come there because they really believe in me and believe I could be a factor on their team.”

This month, Denis has added offers from Mississippi State, Pitt, Ohio State, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Florida, Michigan, Kansas, Tennessee, Clemson, Georgetown, and Texas A&M. Heading into this spring, he previously held offers from Indiana State, Charlotte, High Point, Arizona State, Georgia State, Radford, and UNC Greensboro. Clearly, his recruitment has exploded onto the high-major level, and it will only continue to get more crowded as Denis shoots up the national rankings.
