Ty Isaac is taking his talents to Ann Arbor. The former USC running back announced on Twitter Thursday afternoon that he is transferring to Michigan in the fall.
I will be attending the University of Michigan this year

A native of Joliet, Illinois, Isaac decided to transfer to be closer to his mother, who is dealing with medical issues. Issac says he chose Michigan over Illinois due to his being more familiar with members of the Michigan coaching staff.
“I just always felt that Michigan was one of the schools I wanted to look into once all of this started happening,” Isaac said. “They have all of the same coaches except one since I was recruited by them. They have a great staff, a great tradition and I also feel like I will be a good fit. The offense is a good system for me and I feel that I can come in and compete right away.”
Isaac will seek a hardship exemption from the NCAA to avoid sitting out the 2014 season because of the transfer.
