Besides his offer from the Mountaineers, Isreal actually does have offers from Memphis, Georgia Southern, Missouri State, NC Central, San Diego State and UT-Martin.

As a freshman this past season, Isreal led the Grizzlies to a 7-5 record by going 126 of 242 (52.1%) 1,841 yards passing with 13 touchdowns and 12 interceptions while rushing for two scores.

"I'd definitely call myself a quarterback who can be a playmaker," Isreal responded when asked about his style of play. "I am a 'pass first' guy, but if things break down or everyone is covered, I can make plays with my legs for sure."

Isreal enjoyed a solid prep career in South Carolina, but it took him a while to get qualified, so he wound up taking the JUCO route instead of taking an offer from a smaller school.

"I had a lot of schools interested in me, but it took me a while before I finally got my (SAT/ACT) test scores, so I qualified late and by the time I was all set to go academically, all of the interest and offers had dried up," Isreal noted. "Butler was a great opportunity for me with their tradition, the coaching they give you and the fact that they have a long history of getting guys moved on to four-year schools."

Since he was a qualifier out of high school, Isreal can leave right away and he plans to sign his letter-of-intent and enroll this summer and he will have four years to play three starting this fall.
