Bryce Bevill speaks matter-of-factly, no doubt in his voice. The Bishop McNamara Coach believes in the skills of his senior safety, Nicholas Law.
"He's a hard-working kid and very, very explosive," Bevill said. "He's a safety-outside linebacker type that can make plays. He's 6-2 or 6-3, 195 pounds and can run a 4.4 (second, 40-yard dash)."
Law became Iowa's 16th known verbal commitment on Monday. He officially visited the school this weekend.
Scout.com ranks Law as a three-star prospect on its five-star scale. The service tabs him as the 74th-rated safety in the 2011 Class.
"He's really versatile, so I could see him playing safety or linebacker in college," Bevill said. "He can play on the hash or come down on the blocks. I think that's why so many colleges (were) interested in him because he fits into so many different schemes. He's also very, very physical."
Law is a sprinter on the Bishop McNamara track team
It's not been a good season for McNamara (0-9). The Mustangs were scheduled to finish up the season this Friday at DeMatha.
Bevill said Law carries a 3.2 grade point average.
