Michigan State football OL Jacob Isaia enters NCAA transfer portal

·1 min read

For the second time in six days, a Michigan State football player from Las Vegas has entered the NCAA transfer portal.

This time it is redshirt junior offensive lineman Jacob Isaia.

Isaia followed in the footsteps of freshman linebacker Ma'a Gaoteote, a fellow alumnus of the Nevada prep power Bishop Gorman.

The 6-foot-3, 310-pound Isaia, a former three-star recruit in the 2018 class, never started a game at MSU and played primarily on special teams.

EARLY IN, EARLY OUT: Michigan State's 'Zoom baby' 2021 class is already thinning. But why?

This past season, 69 of his 71 snaps took place while serving on the field goal and point-after attempt units. He is the grandson of former Spartans fullback Bob Apisa, an All-America selection who played on national championship teams in the 1965 and 1966.

Isaia, who will be transferring as a graduate student, is the 18th scholarship player from MSU to enter the portal since September.
