Beaumont Ozen senior linebacker and TCU commit Justin Isadore said his visit to TCU this past weekend was highlighted by getting to know head coach Gary Patterson and some of the other players that he will be practicing and playing alongside in 2009.

"We watched some film and discussed how I would fit in on the defense," he said. "We also ate a lot."

The 5-11, 200 pound linebacker, a 2008 4A All-State selection will be teaming up with Copperas Cove all-state linebacker and fellow TCU commit Tanner Brock to form a nasty duo in the Frogs' 4-2-5 defense that should terrorize quarterbacks and offenses for the next four or five seasons.

Isadore said he has heard a lot about Brock and the two have been text messaging each other on a regular basis.

The Beaumont, TX native said he wants to continue the tradition of great linebacker play the Frogs have had under Gary Patterson. He told BPN that he would compare himself to Daryl Washington, a 6-3 230 pound senior linebacker for the Frogs who runs a 4.4 forty yard dash.

"He (Daryl) is a complete athlete," Isadore said. "But I'm going to try and play right away. If they decide to red-shirt me, then it is probably for the best."

He said it will be a privilege to play for Coach Patterson, whom he called a ‘defensive genius.' The Frogs having the number one defense in the nation this season definitely helped to sway his allegiance towards TCU.

"It put the icing on the cake. I don't think there is another school that wanted me as bad as TCU did."

Isadore said the TCU facilities, including the new players lounge, also impressed him.

The senior finished his final high school campaign with over 130 tackles and six tackles for loss.

Scheduled to enroll at TCU in the summer, he said he is ready to make his presence known.

"Opposing players should know where I am on the field, but if they don't there may be some problems," he said.
