Former LaTech QB reportedly going to Arizona

Just as Arizona lost linebacker Brian Wagner, the Akron transfer who abruptly quit football,  the Wildcats have gained a transfer on the same day.

According to Jason Scheer of, former starting Louisiana Tech quarterback Nick Isham has decided he will head out west and play for first-year coach Rich Rodriguez.

Isham made his transfer intentions known in April. Coincidentally, Louisiana Tech’s coach Sonny Dykes was the offensive coordinator at Arizona from 2007-09 under former coach Mike Stoops.

Barring a hardship waiver from the NCAA, Isham will have to sit out the 2012 season to satisfy transfer rules and will presumably be in the mix for the starting quarterback job after projected starter Matt Scott leaves.

Isham played in nine games, starting seven, in his first year with the Bulldogs last season. He passed for 1,457 yards and eight touchdowns. However, Isham, just 17 at the time of being named the starter, was eventually demoted to backup quarterback.

    Do you really want a kid that at a smaller school, against weaker competition, got demoted to a backup????? Then again the is Rich Rod so who cares?

    Does this mean they aren’t too high on their recent JC transfer?

    What’s going to happen with Savage, the Rutgers transfer? Now that kid is screwed being in this richrod system he never thought he’d have to be a part of when he transferred in for Stoops.
