What Chattanooga Is Getting With Isaiah Otyaluk

Dan Earl and UT-Chattanooga snagged one of the top performers from our HoopSeen stage this week with the commitment of Isaiah Otyaulk who starred with No Guts No Glory in every event played on our HoopSeen platform. He was named the Top Wing from the HoopSeen Association and was named to the First Team for all players also from the Association.

I think this is a huge commitment for The Mocs with Otyaluk being a versatile prospect that can play all over the floor and with the ball in his hands. Otayluk entertained some high-majors over the course of the travel season and probably could have made their rosters but he has found a level where he can make an impact from the first day on campus. He is going to need to add some muscle and some weight to his frame but the natural tools that he possesses are there. Take a look at what we saw over the course of the summer with Otyaluk. 


Named a Top Performer at our Best of the South 

"With NC State on hand for most of his games this weekend, Otayaluk is looking like he might be on the cusp of seeing his recruitment take a trend upwards. He went for 28 points and showed his athleticism in the win earlier in the day on Saturday. He went on a stretch of four straight rim-rattling dunks off of turnovers when No Guts No Glory started to press. He has the tools to warrant the trend upwards with his recruitment and he continues to be a guy that built his recruitment on the HoopSeen stage." - Justin Byerly


Named Top Performer at Grassroots Showcase 

"The cat is out of the bag. Otyaluk got a call from College of Charleston assistant coach Thomas Carr and picked up his first offer on Saturday afternoon. The 6-foot-7 prospect has had a superb start to the travel season and continued that this week at The Grassroots Showcase. He showed his versatility this weekend, something that I think college coaches are intrigued by. When his shot isn’t falling, which is rare, he does the other things productively to help his team win. He is an excellent rebounder and passer and he also uses his length to become a pest on the defensive end of the floor." - Justin Byerly
