Henry County (GA) two-way lineman D'Von Isaac has been all over the country in the past few weeks, and his hard work continues to pay off.
Already garnering interest from SEC and ACC schools, Isaac took a trip to the Proving Ground Combine in Arizona. After a good showing against some of the top underclassmen in the entire country, he had an added vote of confidence waiting for him at home.
"My coach came up to me (in school) and gave me a letter," Isaac said. "It said that Georgia invited me to their junior day."
Though customary in the recruiting process for most 2013 prospects like the 6-foot-4, 280-pound lineman – the invite still carries some weight.
"They're the first school that invited me to their Junior Day," Isaac said. "So it makes me feel like they want me more than the other schools.
"I know a couple of my friends are going up to the (Georgia's) Junior Day also."
It turns out that fellow Peach State juniors Tray Matthews (Newnan) and the Wesleyan School's Rodney Morris were invited as well. The company Isaac may have during the Junior Day, taking place January 28, also means plenty to him.
Said Isaac, "They're really good players so I'm going to be up there with them – makes me feel like I'm one of the best players that Georgia is looking at."
Though Isaac remains humbled by the invite from UGA, he is not ready to rank favorites since his recruitment is still in its early stages and he has yet to receive an offer.
And he knows why.
"They're (the programs) waiting on me to qualify for the NCAA Clearinghouse because I haven't done that yet," Isaac said. "I plan to do that real soon."
In the meantime, Isaac is still hearing form new schools seemingly by the week.
"I got a letter from Duke recently,"Issac added.
