Even after two straight Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championships, Iona has not slowed down in their annual reloading process.
The Gaels picked up a commitment from Robert Morris guard Isaiah Still Sunday evening, shoring up a hole on their perimeter that will open when Deyshonee Much graduates next season. Still will sit out during the 2017-18 campaign, and will have two years of eligibility remaining in New Rochelle beginning in 2018-19. ESPN's Jeff Goodman was first to report the addition of the former Union Catholic product to the reigning MAAC champions.
Still led Robert Morris in scoring last season, averaging 15.7 points per game as the Colonials went 14-19 en route to a semifinal appearance in the Northeast Conference Tournament. The 6-foot-6 wing from Rahway, New Jersey also averaged 4.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game, and brings a skill set similar to that of former Gael Isaiah Williams, who was able to play and defend four positions for head coach Tim Cluess while spacing the floor like no other player in the MAAC.
Iona's latest arrival comes two weeks after the Gaels received a commitment from UMass' Zach Lewis, who is immediately eligible as a graduate transfer.
