61 Days To Purdue Football: Ryan Isaac

Happy Fourth of July Everyone. please celebrate responsibly today.

Today's featured player is one that surprised me last year by earning some decent reps on the defensive line while being a true freshman. he enters 2011 as one of the candidates to replace Ryan Kerrigan.

Ryan Isaac - So.

Hometown: Michigan City, IN (Michigan City HS)

Defensive Tackle

6'5" 260 pounds

2010 projection: Reserve at Defensive end

I expected Isaac to redshirt last season, but instead he worked his way into the lineup for five games, earning seven tackles and a sack in his limited time. that gives him the rare amount of experience he needs to possibly replace Kerrigan. i know he won't immediately replicate Kerrigan's numbers, but it is still impressive that he earned playing time as a true freshman at a position that was not injury ravaged. It is entirely possible he could redshirt this year, but I doubt it.

Isaac had quite a senior season at Michigan City, which has long struggled in the tough Duneland Conference. The three-star recruit had 50 tackles, 8 sacks, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries as the Wolves finished with a 6-4 record. It was Michigan City's first winning record since 2005. He accomplished these stats despite being double teamed on most plays.
