First Offer in for 2013 Georgia DL

D'Von Isaac has been very busy in 2012, beginning the year in Arizona for the Proving Ground Combine and visiting seven schools unofficially before spring ball began – all in search of offer No. 1. On Thursday, Memphis became the initial school to verbally extend to him, so to say the 2013 prospect was relieved would be an understatement.

Henry County High School in McDonough, GA is home to D'Von Isaac, but he hasn't spent much time there outside of school hours. After trips to combines and nearly 10 schools since the New Year rang in, the 2013 defensive line prospect is just now catching his breath as spring football begins.

Then on Thursday, he says things got "a whole lot better" when the Memphis Tigers became the first school to offer him a full scholarship.

"It happened after school today (Thursday)," said Issac. "I guess my dad told the coach and the coach announced it to us, that's how I found out."

Though Isaac himself hasn't had much contact with the Tigers' staff, with his dad has handling most of his recruiting, the offer was still a relief despite it coming out of nowhere.

"I just got a couple of letter from them two weeks ago, and all of a sudden they came out and offered me," said a surprised Isaac. "I think they got a new coach (Justin Fuente) up there, that's mostly what I know about Memphis right now.

"The plan now is that hopefully more offers come in while I'm doing what I'm doing – working out hard and stuff like that. Hopefully this spring I'll pick up some more."

As for who may be next in line to offer the 6-foot-4, 275-pounder – plenty of schools will be stopping by his high school to see him in person.

"Cincinnati came by to talk to me personally, Tulane and Georgia State," said Isaac. "Cincinnati pulled me out of class in the middle of a lab report, it was fun.

"My friend went up there (to Cincinnati), and he says it's nice up there – and the coach seemed like a pretty nice guy."

Isaac has already unofficially visited Mississippi State, Alabama, Florida, South Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Auburn – most of which are also set to visit Henry County High in the near-future. With one offer in the bag and more potentially on the way for Isaac, who says schools are waiting to evaluate him in person before pulling the trigger, stay on FOX Sports Next and for the latest.
