Corcoran Happy with Hawkeye Camp

Josh Corcoran has been building a relationship with Iowa for quite some time. It took a step forward at the recent Hawkeye prospect camp. The Minnesota linebacker talked about it with HI.

The Iowa coaches seem impressed with Josh Corcoran. The Minnesota linebacker offers the kind of athletic versatility the Hawkeye staff covets.

"They said I could stay in the middle or could move out and develop into a stand-up pass rusher," the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Lakeville (MN) South High product said.

Corcoran returned to Iowa City on Sunday to take part in the program's first prospect camp of the summer.

"I felt I did good at the pass rush against the running backs but I could have done better at pass coverage and my 40," he said. "I ran a 4.83. I'm looking to improve my 40 for my other camps."

Corcoran said he will camp at Iowa State, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Nebraska this summer. He reports scholarship offers from South Dakota and South Dakota State.

Corcoran felt like he left Iowa with positive momentum.

"They brought me and some other top prospects on a tour of the new facility that's under construction. After that, I sat down and talked to Coach (Jim) Reid for a while and he said I have a very high potential to pick up an offer this June," he said.

And that would be just fine with Corcoran, a three-star prospect and No. 30-ranked middle linebacker nationally in the 2015 Class.

"I think the Iowa program is great and with the new facility going up it's only going to get better. I talked to Coach Reid for a long time and I'm very impressed with his 43 years of coaching, including some in the NFL," Corcoran said.
