Dantonio on Isaia: "Jacob is an excellent, highly recruited player who comes from a great high school program at Bishop Gorman. We saw him play as a sophomore and offered him early in his career. He's very athletic and has the ability to play any position on the offensive line; he could play inside or at center, and has the quickness to play outside. With the legacy of his grandfather, Bob Apisa, playing at Michigan State, we're very excited about Jacob joining the Spartan family."
