BERKELEY, Calif. -- Last season, Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill running back Isaiah Floyd opened the eyes of college programs, rushing 102 times for 793 yards and eight touchdowns in 12 games, while also hauling in 36 passes for 422 yards and six more scores.
But, he still has yet to score his first offer. That could change in a matter of weeks.
“I still have to wait for my summer school classes, because of my grades,” Floyd admitted this past weekend at a 7on practice at California Memorial Stadium. “I went to the San Jose State camp on Wednesday, it was more of a workout. That was good. I got the coach’s card, and he said to keep in contact, because I have to take some classes at DVC [Diablo Valley College] to get eligible with all my grades, so I can be offered. I’m waiting through the summer, and then, I’m going to call all the coaches back after summer school.”
Floyd is taking classes at both DVC and Foothill this summer to up his GPA from 2.0 to 2.3, he said, but in the meantime, he’s also going to check out one more Mountain West school.
“I’m going to go to the Nevada camp in a couple weeks, and I’ve talked to coach [Mike] Bradeson, and he’s looking forward to seeing me,” Floyd said.
Floyd figures to be the focal point of the Falcons’ offense this season, with the loss of quarterback Kyle Kearns (who signed this February with Wake Forest) and receiver/defensive back Isaiah Langley, who signed with USC.
He’ll have some help, though, with the arrival of 2018 quarterback Ben Wooldridge.
“It’s nice. He’s young, but he’s good, really good,” Floyd said, after teaming with Wooldridge while playing seven-on-seven with Kenion Training. “We’re definitely going to be good this year. Of course, when you lose Kearns and Langley, that’s a big loss, because they’re Division I athletes, but with this quarterback and our team, we’ll make up for it.”
