Kenny Solid with Iowa

On Wednesday, good friend and fellow Iowa verbal commitment, David Kenney, said he was considering Indiana. A day later, John Kenny shared his recruiting status with us.

John Kenny wants badly to play college football with good friend, David Kenney. For the former, it appears that is going to have to happen at Iowa.

Kenny said on Thursday that he is solidly committed the school and not looking elsewhere. A day earlier, Kenney said that his Hawkeye pledge remained in place but he now was considering Indiana as a possible destination. His father, David Sr., was hired this summer to a recruiting position with the Hoosiers.

Kenney said on Wednesday that he felt he and Kenny would play together at the next level no matter what happened.

"We aren't a package deal," Kenny said on Thursday. "I'm 100 percent committed to Iowa right now."

The Hoosiers have brought to Bloomington this season Kenny, Kenney and other top recruits from around the Indianapolis area. Kenney talked about that and his status here.

"All the Indiana guys have been on visits together and are friends," Kenny said. "So, I think IU is trying to get us to change the program around and be hometown heroes."

When asked directly if he was considering Indiana, Kenny flatly said "No."
