Michigan is not known as a transfer destination for football. In fact, the last time they received a transfer was quarterback Steven Threet in 2007.

It appears that is about to change.

According to a report from's Jeremy Fowler, former five-star and USC Trojan running back Ty Isaac is expected to transfer to Michigan. Fowler even went as far as saying that Isaac committed during his recent overnight visit.

"Michigan expects to land USC transfer running back Ty Isaac, who according to a source is working through the admissions process with the school and committed some time after his visit this week."

It is not clear whether Isaac will be granted a hardship waiver from the NCAA if he decides to transfer to Michigan, but it is an option that will be pursued.

If granted, Isaac will enter the depth chart eligible to play right away as a true sophomore. With no clear leader at running back, Isaac is expected to compete for playing time this season. However, if it is denied, he will have to sit out the 2014 season with a redshirt.

This is a developing story.
