Michigan Running Back Ty Isaac’s Appeal Denied By NCAA, Making Him Sit Out This Season

Posted on Posted in Michigan Football

During Wednesday’s press conference, Michigan coach Brady Hoke was asked for the status of an appeal to the decision of the NCAA, which denied a hardship waiver to USC-transfer running back Ty Isaac.

“Yeah, it didn’t go through,” stated a disappointed Hoke.

Despite the bad news, however, Isaac is continuing to keep his spirits high as he competes as one of two running backs working with the scout team. Hoke had nothing but praise for the promising back.

“He’s handled it great. I think from an attitude standpoint and everything else, he’s been awesome.”

It’s good news for a Michigan team that is looking to have strong competition at running back in the coming seasons, and perhaps a solidified status of Isaac will assist in alleviating the stress surrounding the program right now.

Hoke did confirm that Isaac will have three years of eligibility, beginning next season.
