USC Trojans forward Isaiah Mobley is looking to continue his family’s legacy at the next level by joining his brother, current Cleveland Cavaliers big man Evan Mobley, in the NBA.

Isaiah Mobley, who averaged 14.2 points and 8.3 rebounds in his last season for the Trojans, has declared for the NBA Draft.

The 6-foot-10-inch, 240-pound forward is the second Mobley to do so in as many years. His brother Evan, a fellow USC Trojan, was a lottery pick that went third overall in the 2021 NBA Draft to the Cleveland Cavaliers and is now in the running for the NBA’s Rookie of the Year title. Isaiah’s departure now leaves a huge hole in the Trojan’s frontcourt, as he leaves as USC’s leading scorer and rebounder from 2021.

“These past three years have been amazing,” Mobley said in a picture posted to his Twitter account announcing his decision. “I’ve had experiences that I’ll never forget, played with teammates that have become brothers (well, one brother that became a teammate), and I’ve done it all in front of the best fans in the country.”

Isaiah Mobley’s departure marks the end of an era of Mobley-dominated basketball in Southern California, at least on the court. Isaiah and Evan’s father, Eric Mobley, has been a coach at USC since 2018.

“Mom, Dad, and Evan thank you for your conditional love and support. Thank you to my extended family and friends. All of you mean the world to me. Lastly, to my teammates and coaches, I truly appreciate every moment we’ve shared – the highs, the lows and everything in between have helped me become the player and person I am today.”
