2013 RB talks visit experience

1/16/2012

It seems like Michigan has been recruiting 2013 running back Ty Isaac (Joliet, Ill./Joliet Catholic) forever, but he hasn't even finished his junior year of high school yet. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound back holds an offer from the Wolverines, and is one of only three running backs in the class to hold that distinction.

Isaac has been up to Ann Arbor before but decided that this weekend would be a good opportunity to take it in one more time.

This most recent visit was used to ask the coaching staff about their plans to transition to a pro-style offense.

"I just went up and talked to the coaches about the type of stuff they're doing, and how they're progressing to a pro-style offense," he said. "(Offensive coordinator) Al Borges was mainly telling me about the offensive stuff and how they're making the transition."

Isaac said he believes the Michigan coaches are straight shooters and believes what they told him about moving from a spread to a pro-style offense. In fact, Isaac got to be with one of the bigger pieces of that transition for the future, quarterback commit Shane Morris.

"I was talking with Shane, but it was mainly small talk and hanging out," he said. "It was good that they had a plan laid out for me if that was somewhere that I choose. They know exactly what they want to do with the 2012 and 2013 class, they know what they want to do with everybody, and that was a positive."

Sitting down with the coaches and hearing their game plan for the future was something that gave Isaac more reassurance with Michigan. This visit was a positive for Michigan, and solidifies how he felt about them before the trip.

"I definitely like Michigan; I've known that for awhile now," he said. "There's a contact period so I'll see who comes through and if I'm interested I'll check them out. After that I'll do a top list and Michigan is just a school that I like so they'll be in there."
