Conn. sophomore Isaacs already on the radar

By ESPNBoston.com

ESPN's Roger Brown checks in on his recruiting blog today with Manchester (Conn.) sophomore tight end Andrew Isaacs, the lone sophomore in Connecticut with a scholarship offer from a Division 1 FBS school.

Boston College offered the Class of 2013 prospect last March, and has kept in contact with him regularly. Not surprisingly, the Eagles are high on the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Isaacs' list, along with Rugers and UConn.

Isaacs, who is a power forward/center on Manchester's varsity basketball team, said he will likely attend the third session of the Boston College football camp later this month.

Connecticut and Rutgers have also shown interest in Isaacs, who was among the standouts at the Nike Football Training Camp held at Rutgers earlier this month.

"He gets tons of letters like a lot of kids, but Rutgers, Connecticut and Boston College are the three big schools who have had a chance to meet him and expressed an interest in having him in their program," Manchester coach Marco Pizzoferrato said. "Maryland wanted to come by the school to see him, but we couldn't get together on a date."

Isaacs attended the Connecticut spring game, and plans to attend a one-day camp there on June 19. He said he would like to study communications, but would prefer to attend college out of Connecticut.

"I've been to UConn many times and I like them a lot," he said. "They have great coaches and great facilities.

"If [UConn] made an offer I wouldn't just say 'no.' I would be interested, I would consider it, but I would rather experience something out of state just because Connecticut is so small."
