Full Ride Episode 1: Part 5 of 5
In the Midwest, Michigan and Notre Dame are heavily pursuing Joliet Catholic running back Ty Isaac, who accounted for more than 50 touchdowns as a junior. Interest is also stemming from Auburn's Gene Chizik, who seems poised to steal Isaac from the heartland and bring him down south.
Max Browne, the pistol from the Pacific Northwest, is 2013's top passer and facing a crucial choice between USC and Oklahoma. Schools across America are trying to secure the Sammamish, Washington product, but it appears that Lane Kiffin and Bob Stoops have distinguished their programs above all others.
Lastly, Bishop Luers linebacker Jaylon Smith has Hoosier State rivals Purdue and Notre Dame bidding for his services on the defensive side of the ball. But, Smith's older brother Rod plays for Ohio State and the Buckeyes' Urban Meyer is attempting to sign Jaylon as well.
