"That is what I want to do and Boston College doesn't have it as a major and Maryland does," Isaacs said. "It was tough because from a commitment standpoint I gave my word to Boston College and it's a great university and it has great coaches. It's nothing against them.
"B.C. is a great place. If they had the program, I would be going there."
Isaacs visited Maryland in the spring and was given a tour or campus and an academic presentation. He also met with Terps athletic director Kevin Anderson.
"I feel comfortable there," Isaacs said. "I know I can fit in."
Isaacs called Maryland coach Randy Edsall with the news of his decision to change his commitment, and it was met with excitement and relief.
"(Edsall) was real excited," Isaacs said. "I feel a lot better because it was a thing me and my family talked about for a while and needed to be done. Now that it's finally over, I feel relaxed about it."
However, with the decision now made, future visits are not on his mind.
"As of right now, I'm going to try to focus on my season," he said. "I'm not thinking about visits."
