Iowa Impresses Veii

Jacquille Veii traveled to Iowa City this weekend for his official visit. The Class of 2013 athlete talked about his Hawkeyes stop and the possibility of playing a position other than defensive back for them.

With 10 days to go before signing day, Jacquille Veii is stuck in the middle. The Class of 2013 athlete said he likes Iowa and Maryland equally.

"Right now, I don't know what to do," Veii said. "I'm just really thinking about everything."

Veii officially visited Iowa this weekend. He's expected to announce his decision on signing day (Feb. 6).

"It definitely impacted me," Veii said of his Hawkeye stop. "I got to see some things that I didn't know about before. I got to know some things that I didn't before.

"The visit was great, I just don't know. Personally, for me, I'm just not sure of anything yet."

Iowa sophomore Jordan Lomax played host to fellow Maryland native, Veii. They hadn't met before the visit but had a lot in common, Veii said.

"I was impressed with how close the football players were with each other," Veii said about Iowa.

Veii said he got to know the Hawkeye coaches much better. The staff presented to him a alternate possibility for his college position.

"At the beginning of the trip, they were talking about corner," Veii said. "Now it's open to receiver or corner. They're not sure yet."

Veii, who reports running the 40-yard dash in 4.27 seconds, said he will let the coaches at Iowa and Maryland know of his decision a day or two before signing day.

"I don't even know what it's going to come down to," Veii said. "I'm just going to have to talk to my family and my coaches. I'll compare the two schools and go from there."

Veii visited Iowa by himself.

"Me personally I don't care about the distance," Veii said of Iowa being a time zone away from his Maryland home. "My family, they've been speaking to me about it. Right now, I'm just kind of in the middle."
