Junior Ty Isaac interested in the Wolverines
It's easy to see why college coaches are interested in Joliet (Ill.) Catholic running back Ty Isaac. On top of his excellent production - the junior ran for 119 rushing yards and four touchdowns in less than a half of action on Friday against Marion Catholic - he has the size to set him apart from other runners, standing 6-3, 215 as a junior. According to Isaac, he'll use that size to his advantage at the next level.
One coaching staff that has taken notice of Isaac's combination of size and speed is Michigan. The Wolverines are changing their offense from a spread attack to a more traditional pro-style offense, and a runner with Isaac's size and ability can take their offense to the next level. He thinks he's a perfect fit in their schemes.
Michigan's offense is one appealing part of their recruiting pitch, but that's not all the Wolverines have going for them. He's excited about the big-time atmosphere that a school like Michigan can provide. Though he doesn't have a date set yet, he plans to witness Ann Arbor in person later this fall.
This fall, he has already been on the campuses of Notre Dame, Illinois, and Northwestern (for this weekend's loss to Michigan). He plans to take his time with recruiting, although right now he has too many schools interested to name them all without leaving anybody out.
His recruiting process will really get started following his junior year. For now, he's not eliminating any schools from contention, but he plans to start whittling down his list of suitors this spring.
Competition should be heavy for Isaac. However, it sounds like the Wolverines have a chance to be in it until the end.
