The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Isaac, from Canarsie High School, made his announcement Monday in a video on Twitter. He said he received 30 offers from FBS schools and narrowed his list to Penn State, Miami, Syracuse and Texas A&M before choosing the Nittany Lions.

Isaac was rated four stars and considered the No. 1 high school prospect in the state of New York by both 247Sports and Rivals. He was ranked No. 4 in the nation among weakside defensive ends by 247Sports and sixth by Rivals.
