In my opinion, Joliet Catholic junior running back Ty Isaac is the best player in the state of Illinois.
If he can stay healthy, he will be the best running back to come out of the Chicago area - and we've had some really good ones. He kind of reminds me of an Eric Dickerson type of back. He's got great size (6-3, 215 pounds) and strength and vision.
The other top local players in the Class of 2013 are Lemont offensive tackle Ethan Pocic (6-7, 285), Maine South quarterback Matt Alviti (6-0, 176), St. Francis offensive tackle Kyle Bosch (6-5, 275) and Bolingbrook quarterback Aaron Bailey (6-2, 200).
