Issaka has three schools in mind

Just days after he backed out of his verbal commitment to Pitt, three-star defensive end Max Issaka is reaching out to schools and has three in mind.

In fact, the 6-foot-3, 240-pound prospect from Woodbridge, New Jersey is already thinking about official visits, though he hasn't set anything up yet.

Since he decommitted Issaka said he has been in contact with Northwestern, Georgia Tech, Minnesota, North Carolina, UCF, Michigan and Michigan State. He's hoping to visit three of those schools, and perhaps more.

"Basically what I'm getting from those schools is they're really interested and they do have spots (available)," Issaka said. "They just want to evaluate me a little bit and get me in for a visit.

"I'd like to visit North Carolina, Georgia Tech and Central Florida. I liked them before and they were near the top. I just went with Pitt because of location and the distance from home. They just really stand out right now and those are the schools that seem most interested."

Issaka has not set up those official visits but he said he should be doing that later this week.

He is ranked the No. 13 prospect in New Jersey.
