Name: Isaac Zico
Position: Wide Receiver
Ranking: 2* by Rivals, JuCo Transfer
Coach Brohm and his staff had two priority JuCo Wide Receivers that we needed to get. After losing our top 4 to graduation, the JuCo way was the only way to go with Gregory Phillips the only one on the roster with any experience.
It’s official, Isaac Zico is a Boilermaker! #BoilerUp #LetsPlayFootball #NSD17 @_Zicoooo pic.twitter.com/4lytmdzr2P— Purdue Football (@BoilerFootball) February 1, 2017
Zico comes from the JuCo Georgia Military College. Let there be no misdirection here, this kid is fast, he boasts a 4.46 forty yard dash and a 4.27 pro shuttle. Wow. He is 6’ tall, so he could either play the slot or outside, his 37 vertical inch says outside receiver is possible.
On film, like previously stated, he looks fast, he is always the fastest athlete on the field at his JuCo, granted in the B1G most DBs will have similar speed to him, so it is his job to adjust to the game and become a playmaker & better route runner as he won’t blow past everyone in the B1G.
With the 4 top receivers graduating, wide receiver has been a priority, Brohm has answered with getting 2 mid year signings (DJ Edwards & Tyler Hamilton) as well as 4 more to sign this Wednesday, I can imagine in his high octane offense WRs are a premium and are rotated a ton. With I believe 11 on the roster with this class we are in goo shape. Welcome to West Lafayette, Isaac!
