USC Football Recruiting: Local Running Back Ty Isaac Chooses Trojans

The Chicago metropolitan area has produced a genuinely ridiculous amount of homegrown basketball talent over recent years, but the same can't be said for football. Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall, former Bengals guard Eric Steinbach and Colts safety Tom Zbikowski each made it out of the 'burbs and to the NFL, but the Chicagoland area is far from a football factory. That's why Ty Isaac's commitment to the USC Trojans on Tuesday is so meaningful.

Isaac stars at Joliet Catholic, one of the state's perennial high school football powerhouses. For as dominant as the Hilltoppers usually are, they haven't produced a prospect as good as Isaac since former Tampa Bay Buccaneers fullback Mike Alstott. Isaac, a consensus top-10 national recruit, is that good.

Isaac made his announcement today via Twitter:

The running back choose USC over the Michigan Wolverines.

Last time Isaac stepped on a high school football field, he put together what might be the most impressive single game performance in IHSA history. That is not an exaggeration.

In Class 5A state championship last year, Isaac finished with 26 carries for 515 yards and six touchdowns. Get this: JCA still lost to Montini 70-45.
