Accolades: Despite missing some time with injuries, he ran for more than 1,500 yards (8.7 avg.) with 22 TDs and caught 12 passes for 287 yards (23.9 avg.) with 3 TDs as a senior en route to a spot in the Under Armour All-American game.  The Midwest product was the Chicago Sun-Times Player of the Year as a junior thanks to amassing 45 rushing touchdowns, including 5 in the state championship game.

Scouting Report: The Trojans never found a power running back last season once Tre Madden went down with a torn ACL in spring practice.  Now, Madden is back, and he will compete with Isaac for that role behind elusive senior Silas Redd.  Isaac knows the route to the end zone having scored a ridiculous 67 rushing touchdowns combined in his final two years as a prep.

I met Ty and watched his heroics on the field a number times when my nephew Adam Collins(div 1 baseball Central Michigan) played with him at JC. Names Like Jim Brown, Eric Dickerson and OJ Simpson come to mind when watching him...He is a very respectful young man with a great work ethic and dedication to his sport. You have a good a great one there. Ranked 4 running backs? Missing half his season and still gaining 1500 yards on the ground from the toughest teams the State O Illinois has to offer? It has to be a close with 1, 2,and 3.
