Isiah Brown, a three-star point guard from Seattle, signed his National Letter of Intent to play basketball at Northwestern on Wednesday afternoon. Brown who attends Lakeside High School, was the second class-of-2016 prospect to commit to Northwestern after visiting Evanston in late May.

An under-the-radar prospect early in the recruiting period, Brown chose Northwestern over Washington, St. Mary's, UC Irvine and Utah State.
"Isiah has a great pedigree," Northwestern head coach Chris Collins said in a release put out by the program. "He is a first-team all-state player in the state of Washington. He has been a great scorer in high school. I think his ability to make plays and put the ball in the basket is going to really compliment our guard corps. I expect him to be able to come in and contend for big minutes as a freshman."
Brown rounded-out a highly regarded Northwestern recruiting class that also features center Barret Benson and forward Rapolas Ivanauskas, both of whom signed their NLI's on Wednesday.
