Former Indiana State guard Isaiah Swope committed to Saint Louis on Monday, following in the footsteps of his coach and teammate.

The guard joins coach Josh Schertz and big man Robbie Avila on the Billikens for the 2024-25 season. The transfer marks Swope's third school in three years. He previously played at Southern Indiana.

Swope and Saint Louis took to social media to announce his decision.

All five starters from Indiana State's team that reached the NIT final entered the transfer portal in the wake of Schertz leaving for Saint Louis. Avila committed to the Billikens on Saturday.

Swope averaged 15.9 points and made 113 3-pointers this past season, tied for the fourth in the country.

The Sycamores missed the NCAA Tournament after losing to Drake in the Missouri Valley championship game, but they received a No. 1 seed in the NIT. They won four games before falling 79-77 to Seton Hall in the title game.
