WSSU grad transfer Issac Parson headed to NC Central

Former WSSU guard Issac Parson will spend his final season as a college player at North Carolina Central (NCCU).

Parson announced his commitment to North Carolina Central on Thursday. The announcement comes weeks after he announced he would hit the transfer portal as a graduate student.

Parson was a decorated player at Kinston High School. He committed to WSSU in the spring of 2020 and made his debut in 2021 as the CIAA sat out the 2020-2021 season due to Covid 19.

Issac Parson was part of a solid recruiting class for Cleo Hill Jr. that included Farmville Central guard Samage Teel. The two made their debut at Cameron Indoor Stadium against Duke University and led WSSU in scoring — in a blowout loss. Parson averaged 7.4 points per game, 1.32 assists per game, and 2.7 rebounds per game, with a .379 field goal percentage, shooting .344 from beyond the three-point line on the season, and received CIAA all-rookie honors.

As a sophomore, Issac Parson improved those numbers, averaging 10 points and 3.9 assists per game and shooting a team-high 41 percent from the 3-point line. Parson helped WSSU get to the CIAA title game by knocking off Virginia Union while injuring his wrist. WSSU would go on to win the CIAA title game without him and nearly upset top-seed Indiana (PA) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Teel hit the transfer portal following the 2022-2023 season, ending up at Presbyterian College. That left Parson as the starting point guard instead of splitting time with Teel. He averaged  12.4 points per game, 5.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists to 3.4 turnovers per game as WSSU went 19-9, recording the best record in the CIAA but falling in the first round of the tournament. Now he’s headed to NCCU to play for head coach LeVelle Moton.
