The Class of 2018 for the California Golden Bears just got a little bigger on the defensive line.

Isara is a defensive lineman playing at Mt. San Antonio College (Mt. SAC), where he has spent the past three years (one of which was a redshirt). As a redshirt-freshman in 2016, Isara earned first-team honors on the Community College Football All-American team.

Isara is ranked three stars by 247Sports with a score of 0.8556; here are his Hudl highlights:
