( Isaiah Brandt- Sims 6-0 175 Jr. ATH has been offered by Wyoming, and had an outstanding UW Showcase Event)
If you want a kid with the full package hop over to Wenatchee, Washington and catch a glimpse of Isaiah Brandt- Sims (6-0 175 Jr. Slot/RB). He has done more in his first two years of high school athletics then 99% of most athletes will ever do in a career. As a freshman the kid won the 100 and 200 meter big school state titles on the track. Its hard to put into perspective how rare that is, but it just doesn’t happen.
He won both titles again this year and has posted best times of (10.6) in the 100 and (21.24) in the 200. More than anything big time D1’s want speed, and you can bet that this will be a year where multiple Pac 12’s pull the trigger. Isaiah currently holds a D1 offer from Wyoming who has done an outstanding job here in the northwest recruiting.
Part of the reason that Brandt-Sims will be one of the most recruited kids in the entire region, is due to the fact that he possesses a host of intangibles that most top athletes don’t. Isaiah’s a tough kid that won’t settle. Just last week him and fellow talented teammate Dillon Sugg (6-5 210 Jr. QB) made the trip to Seattle to train with us at the Academy, and get some work in with Barton before doubles started. No matter how much he has done previously, he’s not content and just wants to continue to get better.
Isaiah went for 17 Tds and over 1450 rushing/receiving yards last season, but Wenatchee finished (5-5) losing close ball games to good teams. All of his testing times and statistics are better then almost anyone within his class in the region, with respect to Budda Baker of Bellevue who holds Washington and UCLA offers.
Brandt- Sims sports a 3.9 GPA and has a strong family backing where a certain standard was set early on in life and followed to this day. Isaiah says, ” I’ve loved growing up in Wenatchee, the community is very caring and supportive and Im blessed to live here” . His brother Christian Brandt-Sims (6-3 170 Fr. WR) is one of the most talented in coming freshman in the Pacific Northwest, and also takes his academics very seriously as a student body president.
When asked about his goals Isaiah says, ” we would like to win the league and go deep in state, and I personally would like to go for over 2000 all purpose rushing/receiving yards and score at least one TD every game”. Brandt- Sims was the only sophomore between the state’s of Oregon and Washington selected to be a part of NEI-North and South at the 7 on 7 national tournament in Vegas. He was dominant on a national stage, and was one of the top players in the 40 team tournament.
Isaiah is one of the most like able kids you are ever going to meet. His character and personality stick out like a sore thumb and some school is going to get a big time talent. We could see him grabbing additional offers very soon, as there is no question that he will be a legit Pac 12 type athlete. If we are talking schools of interest Stanford would be at the top of the list as he has already made an unofficial visit, loving the academics that go with the football.
We work with a lot of great kids, most of whom are the top athletes in the Pacific Northwest. Isaiah Brandt- Sims is a class act and a kid you can always feel confident is doing something to better himself. His talent alone screams high level D1, but his overall demeanor makes it a no brainer when schools are asking themselves if they should offer.
I personally feel Isaiah should be a 15-20 offer guy no questions asked, he’s that good. We look forward to covering the Panthers in the coming seasons, as they have a host of young talent and really good kids who will only help bolster northwest recruiting.
