Back in April of 2012, it was reported that Nick Isham would be transferring from Louisiana Tech. Just over two years later, it’s lather, rinse and repeat for the quarterback.
According to the Arizona Daily Star, Isham informed the Arizona coaching staff that he has decided to leave the Wildcats and will transfer elsewhere to continue his playing career. Isham had transferred to Arizona in July of 2012, then sat out that season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.
No specific reason for Isham’s departure was given, although the fact that UA will have six players on scholarship at the position come summer camp may have something to do with it.
While he played all 13 games in 2013, Isham’s playing time essentially consisted of serving as the holder on field goals and extra points. Isham did not attempt a pass last season.
Isham started seven games as a true freshman in 2011 at Tech, with his start in the opener that season making him the second-youngest opening-game starter in college football history (Texas A&M’s David “Moon” Walker, 1973) at 17 years, 11 months old. The Calabasas, Calif., native was a three-star member of the Bulldogs’ 2011 recruiting class.
