Big decision looming

Take one look at Justin Isadore(5-11, 200) highlight film and you can see what all of the fuss is about. His reckless style of defense has endeared him to coaching staffs across the country. Multiple schools have thrown their hat into the mix in hopes of landing a commitment from the coveted defender. With the clock ticking down to the start of his senior year, Isadore has decided to make his decision known sometime next week.

TCU is one of four teams that has made the cut and PurpleMenace.Com caught up with Justin to see what it is about the Frogs that has them in such lofty company.

"TCU is in my top four" said Isadore. "I really like how they are close to home and
I really like the coaching staff. When I came up there for a visit, the thing that stood out to me was the team atmosphere. You could just feel it."

With all of the early success that TCU has had in the 2009 recruiting class, linebacker is a position where the Frogs always recruit well. After nailing down a commitment from one of the state's best linebackers in Copperas Cove's Tanner Brock, the Frogs are hoping that Isadore will join him to form a dynamic duo of fast, hard hitting backers that will take Coach Patterson's 4-2-5 defense to another level. With a defense that is consistently ranked in the top 10 in the nation, prospects like Isadore have taken notice.

"I would love to play in a defense that was the best in the nation" said Isadore. "Coach Tademy was telling me that TCU is always in the top 10 in the nation and I would love a chance to play for a defense like that."

While other schools are in the mix, TCU offers a few things to Isadore that has really caught his attention. Prospects are constantly talking about the desire to play for a coaching staff that they can relate to and Isadore is no different.

"I'm looking for a place where I can get early playing time but the most important thing to me is the coaching staff. I want a good coaching staff and that's one of the things I like about TCU, their coaches are really good. They obviously do a good job with their players because their defense is always one of the best in the country."

With Kansas, Kentucky and Arizona State joining the Frogs in the final four to land Isadore, the competition to land him is heating up. Isadore wants to make a decision before his senior year starts and Frog fans are hoping for more good news.

"I'll make my decision sometime next week" said Isadore. "I want to do it before my first game. TCU is a school that I'm definitely interested in. They have a lot to offer".
