Isaah received his Penn State offer while up in State College for Junior Day in April. He visited again a week later for the blue white weekend, and was up again over the weekend of June 16-17. The only other visits he took were to Maryland, for their Junior Day the week before receiving his offer from the Nittany Lions, and Oregon, to the Nike Football Training Camp in Eugene. He comes to Penn State having been named a Max Preps All American and the PA AAAA player of the year last year.
Isaah played both ways in high school, seeing significant time as a running back and less time in the linebacker position. At the Nike Camp, Isaah worked out as a wide receiver and was one of the standouts of the camp. He was listed as an athlete by most recruiting services, but was recruited solely as an outside linebacker by the Penn State staff. He's fast and athletic enough to provide a good rush off the edge, and working with Fitzgerald and Vanderlinden to bulk up and solidify his linebacking technique could turn him into a premium Sam OLB.
