Miami Player Profile: Danny Isidora

In an effort to keep even the most hardcore Miami fan up to date on their favorite players, SOTU will be running a Player Profile series. In these posts, our writers will profile two players from each position that they think should get more face time. They will recap their previous year, or in some cases, preview what may be to come. That way, when the season get's here, you hopefully will have a new found love for the team on the field.

Danny Isidora

Sophomore - G - 6'4 316 - Weston, Fl

Missed the first 10 games of his RS freshman year last season with a foot injury.  Before getting hurt impressed the coaching staff enough that he was expected to be a major contributor to the O line rotation.

Highly touted 4 star recruit coming out of H.S.

Has the brute natural strength to push his man off the ball, and good enough feet to be an exceptional pass protector as well.

Summary: One of the most underrated players on last year's team was Senior G Brandon Linder, as evidenced by his 3rd round selection in the NFL Draft by Jacksonville. But fortunately for UM the drop off should not be all too steep with Isidora replacing him. In fact, while he may not have the experience of his predecessor, Isidora likely has more natural ability. The key to any good offensive line is continuity and communication. So #63 will need to quickly mesh with the 'Canes more experienced hogs, Shane McDermott, Jon Feliciano, and Ereck Flowers. By mid season look for Miami to run behind the big man more and more frequently. He has the talent to be an ALL ACC player down the line.
