Monteroso Sees Iowa

After visiting Iowa on Friday, Dan Monteroso is down to two schools. The Class of 2013 WR from Ohio will see Boston College next week and then have a decision.

Shortly after finishing up his visit on Friday, Dan Monteroso said gushed over Iowa. The Class of 2013 wide receiver from Ohio didn't commit, however. He still has one more date with another suitor.

"I fell in love with Iowa; the coaches, the people, everything," Monteroso said. "But I'm going to look at Boston College this Wednesday. Right now, it's between those two.

"I'll make my decision after I see Boston College. I'm hoping it will be the one I feel is best for me, my parents feel is best for me. It will be the one I feel gives me the best chance to go in and play and the one that can help me accelerate after college."

Monteroso said he favors Iowa but he really wants to see what Boston College offers.

"I don't know what Boston College is like," he said. "We'll see what happens on Wednesday. I could love it, or think it's OK or not like it at all."

Iowa seemed to set the bar pretty high on Friday.

"Coach (Kirk) Ferentz, the way that he talked, I liked him as a person," the 6-foot-3, 180-pound Monteroso said. "He's a good guy. And I liked the whole feel that they have up there on campus with their football team. It's all a big family."

Ferentz and his staff did their best to convince Monteroso that Iowa was the right place for him.

"They said they really like me. They really want me to come," he said. " They showed me everything. It seemed like they were really interested in me. Coach even told me that they want what I have, not the other way around."

Monteroso anticipates his decision will be a tough one.

"It's going to be really hard because no one wants to disappoint anyone," he said. "You pick one school and the other school is going to be disappointed. But I will pick what's right in my heart. It will come down to where I feel most comfortable and where I'm feel I'll succeed."

Monteroso also reports scholarship offers from Bowling Green, Duke, Marshall and Ohio. He is coming off of a junior year that saw him catch 81 passes for 1602 yards and 19 touchdowns.
