George Eyes Possible Visit

Dodge City (Kan.) C.C. receiver Jeff George added an Iowa State offer this spring and could visit this summer.

Iowa State wasted little time offering Dodge City (Kan.) C.C. receiver Jeff George after it watched him perform during the spring evaluation period.

The 6-foot-6 junior college wideout holds offers from Cincinnati, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Arizona State, Kansas State and Iowa State as well as a few others. The Cyclones offered George shortly after Tommy Mangino visited earlier this spring.

“They came out one time during the spring,” George said. “[Tommy Mangino] just gave me a lot of positive feedback. He just liked how energetic I was on the field. He liked the way that I play and practice.”

George is a big, lengthy receiver who caught 46 passes for 690 yards and four touchdowns in 11 games as a freshman at Dodge City. He will arrive at his future college with two years to play two.

Currently, Cincinnati, Mississippi State and Tennessee are thought to be high on George’s list of potential suitors, but Iowa State remains in the mix. Because of proximity, the Cyclones are still an option and are likely to get a visit this summer.

“We’ve talked about me coming up for a visit,” George said of Iowa State. “We don’t have an official date picked or anything yet, but we have talked about me coming up there. It’s really not that far from where I stay. I’m sure I’ll be up there sometime this summer.”

As for where Iowa State stands otherwise?

“We’ll just see how the visit goes,” George said. “I like Iowa State because it’s close. My parents would like to watch me play, so that will probably play a factor in where they fall in my top schools.”

George would ideally like to decide by the end of summer, and while there are many factors in his recruitment, one thing has stood out.

“Somewhere where I can step in right away and compete for a chance to start and be on the field right away and catch some passes is the most important for me,” George said of his ultimate decision.
