Isai was part of Oregon’s four-person 2022 class, ranked as the country’s second-best class.

An all-around utility player, Isai appeared in 10 games this year in her first season with the Oregon Ducks. She left Eugene due to “personal reasons” before Oregon’s matchup against the Ohio State Buckeyes on December 20.
