USC sophomore tailback Ty Isaac discusses the transition into coach Steve Sarkisian's offense.

USC sophomore tailback Ty Isaac saw valuable playing time the second half of his freshman season after injuries suffered by Silas Redd and Tre Madden.

Now preparing for his sophomore campaign, Isaac is ready to carry more of the load and compete for starting job in a rotation of tailbacks that includes redshirt juniors Buck Allen and Tre Madden, as well Justin Davis and D.J. Morgan, both who will be coming off injuries in 2014.

Isaac saw time in all 14 games on special teams in 2013. He carried the ball 40 times for 236 yards including two touchdowns. He also showed versatility catching the ball out of the backfield four time for 57 yards.

USC coach Steve Sarkisian said after Tuesday's spring practice that Isaac was slowed during his first week of spring drills due to a tight back but expects Isaac to make up any lost ground in the coming weeks.
