Hancock Hoping to See Hawkeyes

Iowa has worked hard at recruiting North Gwinnett High School in Suwanee, Georgia last the several years. The Hawkeyes are back there again in the 2016 cycle looking at wide receiver K.J. Hancock, among others. He talked with HI about the mutual interest and the chances he might make it to campus this weekend.

K.J. Hancock really likes Iowa. The Georgia wide receiver hopes the Hawkeyes return the admiration.

Iowa has invited the North Gwinnett (Suwanee, GA) High standout to visit the school on Sunday for its third junior day of the winter. He's worked on getting north.

"My mom is trying to make up the funds to actually get there because I'm very interested in Iowa," the 6-foot-1, 185-pound Hancock said. "I would be honored for them to take the chance and offer me a scholarship."

Anree Saint-Amour, a 2015 defensive end from North Gwinnett, officially visited Iowa last fall before eventually signing with Georgia Tech. He told his teammates positive things about his Hawkeye stop.

"He shared with me his experiences and it really attracted me to the school," Hancock said.

Assistant LeVar Woods recruits Georgia for Iowa.

"Coach Woods is a very cool dude," Hancock said. "He talked to me and Josh Imatorbhebhe for at least 10 minutes when he was at the school. He was just talking about Iowa's expectations and their aspirations for the future, upcoming visit days available and how much he wanted us at Iowa. I would love to go there, no doubt in my mind."

While Hancock awaits his first offer, he said he's hearing from all of the Ivy League programs, Georgia, Duke and Middle Tennessee State University. He said Iowa is showing him the most interest.

Hancock said he would like to study medicine in college with a goal of becoming a family physician or orthopedic surgeon.
