Byers, who originally lived in Dubuque, Iowa for six years, had attended a game at Kinnick Stadium in the past. Does those ties help the Hawkyes in his recruitment, or what exactly will he be looking for in narrowing his list?

"He wants to narrow my list down to five or seven schools in the near future," said Allan Byers, Jeff's father. "Chemistry is going to be the biggest factor as he wants to see how the team relates. Speaking to various players on the visits has been great, and they have been very honest."
