Shortly after defeating Michigan State, 19-16, in double overtime on Saturday, Iowa assistant Erik Campbell got on the phone with Delano Hill. The Detroit Cass Tech safety verbally committed to the Hawkeyes earlier this season.
"He was excited," Hill said. "He asked me if I watched the game and I told him that I did. That was a great win."
Hill toyed with the idea of visiting Notre Dame on Saturday. He already has visited the Irish this season but told us after that he was still committed to Iowa. They have not offered him a scholarship.
Hill was glad he decided instead to watch the Iowa game.
"I liked it," he said. "We have people at Cass committed to Michigan State. I'm not going to brag. We'll talk about it, though."
Iowa did lose a commitment on Sunday when David Kenney chose to re-open his recruitment. Hill visited Iowa City a few times with Kenney and was not surprised by the news.
"I kind of figured it was coming once I found out his dad got the job at Indiana," Hill said.
Losing Kenney, the other 2013, four-star in the class, doesn't impact Hill, he said.
"Each situation is different," Hill said. "You have to go where you feel comfortable. It sounds like he wants to go with his father."
