Texas Receiver Working on Iowa Visit

Dallas Bishop Dunne High serves as a destination stop for college football recruiters. Iowa visits the school on a regular basis and has targeted several prospects in the 2016 class and beyond. One of the players in the mix is receiver Geraud Sanders. He spoke with HI about his interest in the Hawkeyes, theirs in him and when he might visit the Big Ten school.

Iowa has made a name for itself at perennial power Bishop Dunne High School in Dallas. It helped the Hawkeyes become finalists for highly-regarded 2015 defensive tackle Darrion Daniels.

Daniels ended up choosing Oklahoma State ahead of Iowa and others. But the Hawkeyes remaining in play until the end with schools in that region of the country left a mark.

Iowa offered 2016 defensive end Jordon Robertson, Daniels' cousin, and sit in good shape with the junior. The Hawkeyes also like his classmate, Geraud Sanders.

"(Iowa Assistant LeVar Woods) said that they were very interested in me and would like for me to come up for a visit soon," Sanders said. "I will definitely be visiting. I'll probably go up there for the spring game or for an unofficial in the summertime."

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Sanders is listed as an athlete. Iowa is recruiting him as a wide receiver, he said.

"I know Iowa has a great medical school on campus and that the town is close knit with campus," he said. "I plan to be an orthopedic surgeon so I will be attending med school. I also know that the football program has been very successful over the past few years."

Sanders reports running the 40-yard dash in 4.51 seconds.

"I would like to commit by the beginning of the season," he said. "It will come down to how welcoming the coaches are,  good academics, and a solid football program."

Sanders reports scholarship offers from Rice, Miami (Ohio) and Southern. He said he's also hearing from Northwestern, Arizona State, Central Florida, Texas Tech and Stanford.

"I have visited Rice so far," Sanders said. "I plan to visit Rice, again, Iowa, Stanford and Northwestern soon."
