Arizona football: QB Nick Isham to transfer

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

If anything, Arizona is now in the market for a new kick holder

It's seemingly been in the works for a little while, but Nick Isham has decided that he will transfer from the Arizona Wildcats football team.

Isham, who transferred to Arizona in 2012 from Louisiana Tech, was not really in the mix for the starting QB job this season thanks to bigger, more athletic transfers like Jesse Scroggins, Connor Brewer and Jerrard Randall.

Isham started seven games his freshman year at LA Tech for now Cal coach Sonny Dykes.  The freshman QB went 3-4, completed 60% of his passes, threw eight TDs and seven INTs.  It is thought that he is the second-youngest quarterback ever to start his team's first game in NCAA history.

Later on that year, Isham played some inside receiver, where he caught two passes.

At Arizona, his best chance to play quarterback was last year, when his main competition was B.J. Denker.  It didn't work out for Isham, but he did find a role as the kick holder on field goals and extra points.

His size is what hurt him the most when looking for an opportunity to play.  He's listed at 6' 0", but to be honest, while standing next to him to interview him, I don't think he's really six feet tall.

Isham's a good guy, and I wish him success in his future endeavors.  He just wasn't quite the right fit, and missed out on his opportunity thanks to all these other transfer QBs that showed up in Tucson after him.

Good luck Nick!  Sorry it didn't work out.
