Isom Searching for First Offer

Donovan Isom is still searching for that first offer, but the Destrehan quarterback will make a trip to Baton Rouge this weekend to discuss his future with the LSU coaches.

Destrehan standout Donovan Isom will make a trip to Baton Rouge on Saturday for LSU's "Boys from the Boot" event.

The 2014 quarterback doesn't have any offers yet, but is excited about getting an opportunity to sit down with the LSU coaches and discuss his future.

"This is my first Junior Day event I've ever been to, so I don't know what I'm expecting," Isom said. "But from what Coach Wilson is saying, it should be a lot of fun...I'm just going to get there and see what happens.

"They'll probably just want to see how I'm doing with my family and my recruitment and stuff. They'll just want to know how things are going."

LSU currently has three scholarship offers out to 2014 QBs — Chase Litton, Mason Rudolph and Deshaun Watson — and with two already committed in the 2013 class, it's uncertain how hard they may be searching for another. But Isom has emerged as one of the top signalcallers in Louisiana, and the staff has kept close tabs on him.

"I called Coach [Frank] Wilson last Wednesday, and he was checking on me," Isom said. "He told me to call him some time before the Boys from the Boot. And like I said, I'm just going to get there and see what happens."

Isom said he will also probably check out Louisiana-Lafayette and Tulane this spring with a trip to Ole Miss this summer.

He added that he's grown to about 6-foot-5, 230 pounds and has recently resumed his offseason training regiment. He's focusing on footwork drills and continues to work on his throwing motion.

Though his Destrehan team struggled to a 4-5 season, Isom said he had a breakout junior season. One that has him excited for 2013.

"We took a big step forward in the program," Isom said. "We're going to be a lot better next year. I can't wait. I blew up this season. I'm not going to lie. My coaches said that too. This was my first year starting on the varsity level, and I feel like I did good."

And with him also hoping to land scholarship offer No. 1, Isom said he isn't looking at one to come from a certain school.

"I'm patiently waiting," Isom said. "If I receive an offer from anybody right now, I'll be happy."
