PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Better than 0%. Way too early to tell.
If you ain't a Silver Bullet, you're a target
That may be true, but he's visited OSU 3 times prior (If I'm remembering the right recruit) & will make a return visit now that Urban is back in town. This will be a fun recruitment to follow.
Rumor is he is visiting today, I think Gene has him listed on his offer page
Favorite Buckeye: Obviously BJ Mullens
It was confirmed that Isaac was on campus today earlier via BBC
Great highlight tape. Kind of funny that most of the highlights are of him executing the same off-tackle run to the right, but that doesn't take away from his amazing cutbacks, his ability to break tackles, and his surprising speed for someone that big.
In my opinion he's a much better prospect for Urban's power-spread than Derrick Green. Although I'd be interested to hear what Ross Fulton had to say about that.
Also impressive how he times his jumps when going up for the ball so that he always catches it at its highest point. Hard to teach that to a running back.
I am a bit worried about TSUN landing Ty. Their depth chart is far more favorable to Ty (he'd probably start his second year at TSUN) than ours. Plus, they've been recruiting him hard for about a year now. I'm hoping Urban can continue to make ground on prospects like Ty. Would definitely be interested to hear what Alex thinks.
That highlight tape isn't as good as his others just based on the strength of the defenses.
" I went for two cause I couldn't go for three."
Good stuff. Looks like he would've loved the Dave.
Class of 2008
definitely a shot...Meyer has to do some work here as all the big guns are shooting for him
Anyone know anything about his league/level of competition is? Not saying the kid doesn't have talent, but either his offensive line is ridiculously good or the defenses are absolutely terrible for him to have the same break away over and over and over and over again.
It is widely thought to be either Notre Dame or Michigan for Ty Isaac. I think that right now it is something like 48% Notre Dame / 47% Michigan / 5% "other." I am not saying that Meyer/OSU can't or won't get him. But if OSU wins this recruiting battle, it will be a much larger, louder statement than the Bri'Onte Dunn [Re]commit. This is "Dunn 5.0."
I'm sure if Urban wants him, he'll put on the press. He's a power back, and we don't really need one. Plus, it seems like Green is an absolute lock at this point, so why do we need 2?
That's too bad! I think he could be a potential star for either your Wolverines or (solid) at ND. The competition DEFINITELY looks pretty bad compared to Derrick Green's, but Isaac has a great cut/shiftyness and some really solid top speed--I'd like to see him at OSU as a change of pace back behind Green.
Even though Meyer tends to run the spread, even at LSU this year when they did a bit more spread under Jefferson, they had a few really solid 6' 200lb runningbacks if I'm not mistaken (I could be)--don't see why we couldn't as well. I like Isaac's body-type a lot, he'll make a great mid-range, change of pace RB. I don't really see him as a power back at all--I think he falls somewhere in between power and speed judging by his hightlight film.
He's visited Ohio State numerous times, so I wouldn't say "5%" other.
We just offered Derrick Green too.
After our extra-committal affair with Dunn and he broke up with us :-( , Michigan took a couple of less-heralded RBs who were mostly below the national radar but who were big-production stars within Michigan -- Drake Johnson of Ann Arbor Pioneer and Dennis Norfleet of Detroit M.L. King. Both kids essentially waited until everything had shaken out for Michigan and they both jumped at late offers. Norfleet had been a Cincinnatti commit. Johnson seems to have been wishin' 'n waitin' 'n hopin' to go to Michigan all along when schollie numbers and national recruits shook out.
A big star RB is still going to be a major target for Michigan in the 2013 class. It might not be the highest priority, but I think Michigan is going to sell guys like Isaac and Green with the notion that a big role right away could be theirs for the taking, and the general idea that we might be able to put together a super-class in 2013 (with good numbers and flexibility to take whoever is best without too many urgent positions of need).
I'd compare your footing with Ty Isaac to ours with Derrick Green, at least with the previous regime. It's still up in the air if Meyer is as sold on him as Tressel/Fickell were. I wonder if Meyer's poaching of Hinton/Warinner will do anything towards swaying Isaac's love for the Irish? Gotta think taking their RB coach will do some good in this fight. Again, new staffs mean new targets--I think Ty Isaac will be another classic OSU v. UM battle. Should be fun to watch!
I think one or both of DeVeon Smith and Derrick Green will be Buckeyes......Isaac I am not so confident in, even though he just visited OSU for the 3rd time......I think he will be ND, but just MO
I'm just amazed at the options RB, dual threat QB and WR. It will be very interesting to see how it plays out but what us guaranteed is we will get lots of great talent.
@M Man, can't help but point out that using "5.0" doesn't mean something is five times bigger, just means it's the fifth major version (thinks Windows OS versions here). Other than that, thanks for adding your perspective, good to see info from other angles.
