After completing his high school career with a GEICO Nationals appearance and spot on the ALL-USA First Team, Isaiah Stewart is set to join the Washington Huskies.
The Huskies will play four games against Serie A teams from Aug. 11-22.
At that point, Washington will get its first look at a promising young player who looks like he could be a lottery pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
Stewart expressed excitement as he quote-tweeted Seattle Times reporter Percy Allen.
Yessssir ! 🐺‼️ https://t.co/H2hHBrbxbJ

The forward is the gem of Washington’s three-man 2019 recruiting class that includes four-star shooting guard RaeQuan Battle and three-star point guard Marcus Tsohonis.
Stewart led La Lumiere (La Porte, Ind.) to a near-undefeated record. The Lakers finished 30-1 after falling in the GEICO Nationals Championship and ended the season No. 2 in the Super 25.
Washington his hoping Stewart and the rest of the 2019 recruiting class — and eventually Quade Green, once 2017 five-star transfer is eligible — can help the team get back to the NCAA Tournament.
The last time the Huskies played in March Madness in consecutive seasons was a three-year span from 2009-2011.
