Edgy Tim (Northwestern Rivals publisher) has a free article with quotes:

"I decided that I'm going to transfer to Michigan," Isaac said moments ago. "I had a good visit there and it's just the place where I feel the most comfortable."

. . .

"They have all of the same coaches except one since I was recruited by them. They have a great staff, a great tradition and I also feel like I will be a good fit. The offense is a good system for me and I feel that I can come in and compete right away."

. . .

"I need to enroll and then go through the hardship process with the NCAA. I'm hoping to be able to be eligible right away but either way I'm just excited about Michigan."

I'm torn. I think I want him to RS because I don't think there's a huge difference between Green and Smith and Green, Smith and Isaac. That said, when it comes to this stuff, I usually take the viewpoint "do what's best for this year and worry about 3 years from now later." So I'm a bit conflicted.

I  just don't see it.  Quiet hardworker who chose us early and made zero noise when we also got Green and had D Harris committed.

If we had known last year we'd end up with Smith, Isaac, and Green, we wouldn't have known what to do with ourselves.

You don't need a great OL and a great RB stable. Either a great OL or great RB group will do it.  I'm confident our OL will be serviceable. Here's to hoping these three RBs (plus Drake Johnson and whomever else) get it done.

Considering our lack of 2014 RB, and I don't think the addition of Isaac to the Green/Smith combo (and also Justice Hayes) changes the outlook of the offense this season.  I think I would like to see him RS.  However, if him RS deters Harris from getting back on board, I would like to see him eligable.  I think he's going to be eligable this year though.  Seems to have a legit hardship argument.

This is huge! I don't think it matters if he redshirts or not. It will sort itself out. You take this type of talent and deal with any problems later.

And dare I say an upgrade to our current stable of RB's?! I hope he gets a hardship waiver and competes this fall. I for one am looking forward to seeing him play!

I sorta hope he has to sit a year cause I am not to confident on the rbs now in this class.  Plus I think it would be best for the team.  Then we have a more spread out rb class.
