Former La. Tech QB Nick Isham Transfers to Arizona: 2013 Competition Gets Deeper

Jason Scheer of WildcatAuthority.com reported late Friday night that former Louisiana Tech quarterback Nick Isham is transferring to Arizona.

ArizonaWildcats.com already has Isham's profile online.

Isham started the first half of the 2011 season, his true freshman campaign playing for former UA offensive coordinator turned La. Tech head coach Sonny Dykes. Isham completed 60.3 percent of his 257 pass attempts for 1457 yards and eight touchdowns in seven starts.

Isham will not be eligible in 2012 per NCAA transfer rules. His presence does add intrigue for the 2013 starting quarterback competition, however.

UA head coach Rich Rodriguez inked a pair of quarterbacks in his inaugural recruiting class. Josh Kern was a Mike Stoops recruit who remained committed, despite the change in offensive philosophy. Kern is a 6-foot-5, pocket passing quarterback from Clark High (San Antonio). Javelle Allen is a dual threat QB from Prosper (Tex.) High who passed for 30 touchdowns, and rushed for 22 in his senior season.

The Wildcats also welcome aboard JUCO transfers B.J. Denker and Alex Cappellini. One of the four newcomers will back up Matt Scott this season, while also jockeying with Isham for next.

Isham ran an offense similar to Rodriguez's at Westlake High (Thousand Oaks, Calif.). He passed for 34 touchdowns and nearly 3000 yards, and rushed for another five scores and 581 yards his senior season. Isham's rushing ability failed to shine through in Dykes' spread air raid offense, though he did score a pair of touchdowns on the ground.
