Michigan football target Ty Isaac, a five-star running back, chooses USC over the Wolverines
The Michigan football program's top-ranked 2013 recruiting class had a shot to get even better Tuesday.
But it came up just short.
Five-star running back Ty Isaac from Joliet (Ill.) Catholic Academy, offered his commitment to USC, according to his personal Twitter account.
Isaac reportedly had USC, Notre Dame and Michigan in his final three.
In an interview with Scout.com's Allen Trieu, Isaac explained his decision.
"Honestly, Saturday or Sunday, I kind of woke up and knew," Isaac told Scout. "I ran through every scenario in my head and thought about it all and I was just like, football is supposed to be what it's going to be.
"As long as I do what I know I need to do, that's going to take care of itself. When I laid down and thought about where I saw myself being in school outside of football, it was SC."
Brady Hoke currently has 18 commitments for the 2013 class, a group that is rated No. 1 overall nationally by Scout.com.
Michigan presently has one running back in that class, four-star prospect DeVeon Smith (5-11, 210) from Howland (Ohio) High School.
Smith is rated as the 32nd-best running back in the country by Rivals.com.
