Isaiah Todd decommits from Michigan, signs with NBA G League instead
F Isaiah Todd, a five-star recruit and consensus lottery pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, has decommitted from Michigan and will instead sign a deal with the NBA G League.
Todd will join fellow NBA prospect and potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 Draft, Jalen Green, on a newly-formed Los Angeles-based G League franchise. Todd played his junior and senior year of high school in Raleigh, NC before committing to Michigan and Head Coach Juwan Howard. He had offers from top programs such as Kansas, Kentucky, and North Carolina, but ultimately decided on Michigan. That only lasted six months, as Todd decided it was best for his future basketball career to join the professional development program in the G League that is tailored to top NBA prospects like himself. In the development program, Todd will have the opportunity to earn between $500K and $1M and have the ability to go up against players who have more experience than guys in college. Todd and Green alike hope to create a new normal for top high school talent looking to reach their dreams of playing in the NBA.
