BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — WKU Hilltopper Basketball head coach Rick Stansbury announced
Wednesday the addition of Isaiah Cozart (6-7, Forward) in the 2019 class.
One of the elite shot-blockers in the history of Kentucky high school basketball,
Cozart is a standout for Madison Central High School and head coach Allen Feldhaus
in Richmond, Ky.
“We’re excited to have Isaiah join our family,” Stansbury said. “It’s very obvious
he comes from a really good high school program where he’s been coached by coach
Feldhaus, and he played for the same AAU program, M.A.T.T.S. Mustangs, as Taveion
Hollingsworth. He’s a terrific student and comes from a great family – his father is
a preacher and his mother is a counselor in higher education – and anytime you have
the chance to do something that no other player has done in the history of high
school basketball in the state of Kentucky, there’s something special about that.
He’s a young player, and no question his best days lie ahead of him.”
Cozart enters the 2018-19 season with 535 career blocks, just six behind the
Kentucky state career record. His 216 blocks as a sophomore and 205 as a junior rank
second and fourth, respectively, for most in a single season in state history.
He also averaged 12.7 points and 10 rebounds per game in 2017-18 for a 25-8 Madison
Central squad, shooting 58.3 percent from the field and 46.7 percent from 3-point
Cozart is ranked a three-star prospect by Rivals.com and was an all-state selection
as a junior.
