Isaac Recaps UGA JR Day

In what has become a busy month of January for D'Von Isaac, he stopped by Athens for the University of Georgia Junior Day on Saturday. Scout.com caught up with him hours after he left to recap the event.

Accompanied by his parents, 2013 Henry Country (GA) defensive lineman D'Von Isaac took a trip to Athens on Saturday for Georgia's Junior Day.

After registration, height and weight, and an academic presentation, the prospects got a chance to talk recruiting.

"The recruiting coordinator [Rodney Garner] came and talked to us, then Mark Richt introduced all of the coaches and support coaches," said Isaac. "Then after that we ate lunch…toured the campus and where athletes stay and then we learned some history on their recreational center.

"After that, we came back and us as a defense were introduced to the defensive coordinator [Todd Grantham], who told us about all of the stats the team has and all of the players that won awards – it was a lot of them."

The day was capped by a trip to Sanford Stadium complete with a team highlight video. The jam-packed event that Isaac and an estimated 100 other recruits went through left an impression on the 6-foot-4, 275-pound prospect.

"The best moment of today was just being able to talk to other recruits and also knowing about their academic achievements and their goals," he said.

Which recruits?

"One of the people I know is [ELCA's] Keyante Green, and [Dutchtown High's] Jordan Harris as well," said Isaac, who hung out with them for the most of the day.

But even more impressive to Isaac was the bond the team has with its superiors.

"Aaron Murray and all of the other players form a brotherhood between the players and the coaches," he said.

Though still not ready to play favorites, Isaac did offer this on the Dawgs.

"There's a little bit more interest in Georgia now," he continued. "I got to talk to the person recruiting me…coach [Bryan] McClendon.

"He talked to me about their interest in me and things like that."

Isaac also has interest from Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Clemson, Duke and Oregon – though he is awaiting his first offer.
