So I'm sure I will catch some hell for this but here it goes anyway. Remember Kyle Prater, the 5 star WR a couple years ago from Illinois who ended up at USC that everyone was recruiting. He went to USC and eventually lost out to all the other WR they had most of whom were California recruits. Ty Isaac is the second 5-star RB to pull the trigger for USC in the last couple days now. Only one of them is going to start, only one will be the man, and only one will get the bulk of the work. I know, I know everyone says they will be a team player, and they just want the chance to compete, but at some point 5 star, ESPN 150, Under Armor, Army All-Americans expect to play. If its close dont you go with the local talent Davis kid where you are trying to keep/build a pipeline? (and Stockton St. Marys, and Lincoln where Davis is from is an area that produces a ton of talent)
Its very strange to me that a kid like Isaac who would be the favorite to be a starter in a couple years, at a school that is much closer, at a school that has a higher academic standing, at a school that has the best offesive line class in the country, at a school where his parents could attend every home game and most of the away games if they chose to, would choose USC?? Gotta hand to Kiffin and Old Ed as he is called in SEC country for getting the job done.
Almost forgot, Prater is now at Northwestern. Couldn't find the field in Southern California I guess. You can say what you want about injuries, but he was healthy at one point and some how still never played.
This isnt meant to be proof in any one direction just something I noticed. Ty looks to be the type that will stick it out no matter what.
