Junior Isaiah Wilkins Enters Transfer Portal

Winston Salem native becomes latest Deacs to transfer

NCAA Basketball: Wake Forest at Notre Dame Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Junior guard Isaiah Wilkins has entered the transfer portal, becoming the fourth member of the Wake Forest Men’s Basketball team to transfer this offseason, alongside Jahcobi Neath, Emmanuel Okpomo, and Blake Buchanan.

Wilkins initially transferred to Wake Forest from Virginia Tech in April of 2020 while Danny Manning was still at the helm for the Deacs. The Winston Salem native played just 182 minutes for Wake this season, so this decision makes a lot of sense for him. That is just one of those unfortunate situations in college sports where a player commits to play for a certain coach, and that coach is no longer there when the player arrives. Wilkins finished the 2020-21 season with just 32 points and 29 rebounds total in 17 games played.

As it is Forbes first real offseason as the head coach of Wake Forest, the number of players transferring should not be cause for alarm. That being said, when the dust settles, the Deacs are probably going to look much different next season.
