"I told him straight up, I'm looking in other directions in my recruitment," said Isaac.
Isaac, a 6-foot-2, 220-pounder, holds 18 scholarship offers, but has yet to name a list of favorites. However, he was not interested in the Wildcats, and wanted to be honest with the NU coaching staff.
"It's not based off anything they did, it's more of a personal choice," Isaac said. "I wasn't looking at Northwestern at all."
The running back would prefer to play in a pro-style offense at the next level, which was one of the factors in ruling out Northwestern.
"I just didn't have any interest in being there," Isaac said. "Nothing against them, it's just not a fit for me."
At this point, Isaac is not close to setting a timetable for his recruitment.
"It's open right now," Isaac said of his recruitment. "I'm jsut going to hit these last couple visits then take it easy through April and May."
