Tabb focused on finishing strong

With over 20 offers in hand, Red Bank, N.J., native Jack Tabb is taking things slow. The tight end/linebacker hasn't spent much time on the recruiting process lately. It's all been about finishing the season strong.

With over 20 offers in hand, Red Bank, N.J., native Jack Tabb is taking things slow. A 3-star tight end, Tabb has his list narrowed to nine schools, but really hasn't done much in terms to his recruiting since his official visit to Iowa in early October.

"Looking back on my Iowa visit, I love the coaching staff and the players," said Tabb to HawkeyeInsider.com. "Also, there is a lot more to do in Iowa than people think. I think those are the biggest things that stick out for me about my visit to Iowa City."

Red Bank Catholic is 5-1 overall on the year and have two more weeks before the postseason starts. Not looking to overlook anyone, the Casey's next two opponents have a combined record of 4-10.

"We cannot think we are going to just walk right over them, we need to take everything one game at a time and then take it into the playoffs," said Tabb. "We still haven't had our offense perfectly click yet. Once our passing game gets to where it needs to be and our defense a shut down unit, we will be playing our best ball which is what we need to play to win a playoff game."

Tabb has 14 catches for 219 yards, two touchdowns, and 39 tackles on the year. He has played tight end and linebacker during the season. Iowa projects the 2011 offeree as a outside linebacker in the Hawkeye's program.

"Right now, I'm looking to visit North Carolina on November 13th and possibly some where else on the 20th," said Tabb. "I want a school that is the total package. Great academics, a great football program, and somewhere I can mesh with the players and the coaching staff."

Currently, Tabb is being recruited by North Carolina, Iowa, Arkansas, Michigan, Michigan State, Rutgers, Wisconsin, West Virginia and Florida.

The senior told HI's Rob Howe earlier this month that, "Iowa is very high on my list...I can definitely see it as a place I could be."
