Returning College Star Isaac White Joins Hawks

The Hawks have added another rising young star to their roster for the 2020/21 Hungry Jack’s NBL season, signing talented Australian guard Isaac White to a one-year deal.

White has spent the last three years at Stanford University after a stellar junior career in South Australia. The 22-year-old is an outstanding long-range shooter, connecting on a career best 40.8 percent of his three-point attempts last season.

White led South Australia to the 2017 Australian U20 National Championship, which remains as the state’s only national championship since 1993. White was the tournament’s leading scorer at 20.9 points per game.

White had transferred to California Baptist University for his final college season but will now join The Hawks instead.

White joins Emmett Naar, Deng Deng, Dan Grida, Deng Adel and Sam Froling on The Hawks’ roster for the upcoming season.

Hawks Head Coach Brian Goorjian said: “We are delighted Isaac has decided to begin his professional basketball career with us at The Hawks.

“He has had a tremendous junior and college career and we believe he can make an immediate impact at NBL level with his shooting ability.

“Isaac also received numerous honours at Stanford, including being named to the 2020 Pac-12 Winter Academic Honour Roll and the 2019 Pac-12 All- Academic First Team, which speaks to his high character and values as a person.

“We look forward to the positive contributions Isaac will make to The Hawks on and off the court.”

White said: “I’m pumped. It’s a big step in the right direction for me and from what I’ve heard about the club and what I’ve learnt over the years, I’m really excited.

“I feel like I can slide in and my skillset can be valuable for The Hawks. I have heard some really good things about the coaching staff coming in, so it was an opportunity thing. All the stars aligned in meeting my timeframe all at once.

“He (Goorjian) has a history of winning and developing his guys and that is always going to be a large attraction for someone like myself. I’m excited to be under the wing of a guy who has been around the league for so long and I’m sure I’ll be able to learn a lot.”
