USC transfer running back Ty Isaac has been on everyone’s mind recently, leaving fans wondering where the former 5-Star will end up.
He visited the University of Michigan this week, after visiting Illinois, and apparently the visit went well enough to spend the night on campus.
It seems that the visit went better than expected, and according to CBS Sports’ Jeremy Fowler, Isaac is expected to join the Wolverines as a transfer player, and will be seeking a hardship waiver. Isaac may have to burn his redshirt this season, but if so, it will give him a chance to get acclimated to the school, and learn the offense.
If the report is true, he will join a backfield that will now feature 2 former 5-star running backs, a former 4-star running back, and an improved receiving core.
Brady Hoke may have landed one of his best recruits of his tenure at Michigan, and it all happened unexpectedly. Isaac was enjoying his time at USC, but unfortunately for him, his mother’s health was what made him transfer closer to home.
Michigan is not within the 100 miles required to earn a hardship waiver, but that does not mean he will not be on the active roster for this season. If he is granted the waiver, he will be eligible this year, but he will need to be approved by the NCAA in order to do so.
He is not officially committed yet, but all signs point to him joining the Wolverines.
We will update you as the story progresses.
