Davis Watches Stick

Iowa Offensive Coordinator Greg Davis is on the road evaluating quarterbacks this week. He dropped by Omaha Creighton Prep on Monday to watch Easton Stick, who talks about what he heard from the Hawkeye coach in this premium story.

Under the watchful eyes of Iowa Coaches Greg Davis and Reese Morgan, Omaha Quarterback Easton Stick threw to his teammates Monday morning at Creighton Prep. He was happy with his audition.

"(Davis) said he was impressed with what I showed him," Stick said. "He said that everything he saw on film was there. I threw the ball well and I think he liked what he saw. Hopefully things are going in the right direction."

Stick (6-foot-2, 202 pounds) is planning to camp with the Hawkeyes on June 9 as he continues to pursue a scholarship offer. Davis, the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, is in the process of evaluating signal callers.

"(Davis) said he has seen six guys, including me, throw," Stick said. "He plans on seeing three more this week. From there, he'll go talk to Coach (Kirk) Ferentz and they'll decide what they want to do, whether that's to continue to wait until camps or offer some of us. He doesn't know yet. It will depend on what he sees, I guess."

Stick reports one scholarship offer (South Dakota) to date. Schools like Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas State, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Ohio are interested and have been by his school this month, he said.

"(Davis) said he was surprised that I don't have more activity going on with my recruitment or more offers right now," Stick said. "But that's just kind of the nature of being where I'm at (in Nebraska). Quarterback coaches want to get a chance to evaluate me in camp. Right now, it's a waiting game until camp season gets here."

Stick said he also expects to camp at Nebraska, Iowa State, Indiana, Kansas State, Wisconsin and the Dakota schools. He'll also take part in a camp at Northwestern open to scouts from other schools across the region, like Ohio and Akron.

Stick said he's in the same position with the home-state Huskers as most other schools showing him interest.

"Coach (Tim) Beck wants a chance to get to see me in camp to see how I work with them," Stick said.
