Gabe Sisk, a first-team All-State basketball selection last season, is back at Ballard High School after transferring to a California prep school over the summer.
Bruins first-year coach Greg Willis confirmed Sisk has enrolled at Ballard. He won’t play Tuesday night when the Bruins open their season at Seneca, as the school waits on an eligibility ruling from the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.

“He has to go through the transfer process everyone has to go through,” Willis said. “We don’t know the timeframe.”
A 6-foot-6 senior, Sisk averaged 17.3 points and 6.3 rebounds last season while helping Ballard go 28-7 and reach the Seventh Region Tournament final. He shot 47.6% from the field, 32.5% from 3-point range (53 of 163) and 71.4% from the free-throw line.
In August, Sisk announced he had transferred to Prolific Prep in Napa, California.
