Ty Isaac, the highly coveted running back Michigan wanted last fall, is becoming a Michigan Wolverine after all.
The 6-3, 235 power-back from Joliet (Ill.) Catholic Academy transfered from Southern Cal partially because the Trojans have a very competitive backfield and partially because of his ailing mother.
Conceivably, Isaac could play for Michigan this fall of he can secure a hardship waiver from the NCAA— which allows players to transfer under certain family circumstances. The only problem is that Joliet is 252 miles from Ann Arbor, which is more than the 100 miles the NCAA allows.
Whether the plays this fall or next, Isaacs will join a backfield which already has a pair of highly pedigreed—if not seasoned—ball carriers.
I will be attending the University of Michigan this year

“I had a good visit there and it’s just the place where I feel the most comfortable,” Isaac told rivals.com. “I didn’t want to drag all of this out and see a ton of schools. Michigan was in my final three when I committed to USC and the reasons I liked Michigan are still very much in place.” ♦
