Iowa Offensive Tackle Target Mark Kallenberger Not Coming Soon

Iowa target Mark Kallenberger not as close to a decision as once thought.

One of the top prospects in the state of Iowa is offensive tackle Mark Kallenberger of Bettendorf. He plays for a powerhouse program and is now getting recruited by powerhouse colleges.

He has excellent offers including one from the in-state Hawkeyes and nearby Nebraska. Those two schools are leading the charge in his recruitment.

"From the schools that have offered me, Iowa and Nebraska are the ones that still really interest me the most," Kallenberger admitted to Scout. "Oklahoma I'm also interested in. I want to take a trip down there to visit because I do believe they're getting close to offering me."

The visit to Norman has yet to be set by Kallenberger but he and his family fully intend on checking out what the Sooners have to offer. A decision won't come until he's able to have that meet and greet on the Oklahoma campus.

"I haven't locked in on a time when I will commit to a school," Kallenberger shared. "It just depends on when my parents and I are all free and able to take the trip (to Oklahoma). My dad and I have been talking about dates for a bit and haven't figured anything out yet. I do know I'm going to Nebraska on March 12. Nothing else is set since I already went to a junior day at Iowa."

With Iowa and Nebraska ahead for his services, Kallenberger dished out some compliments and explained his interest in both schools.

"I was always an Iowa fan growing up, and taking my visits and seeing all their facilities and the coaches, it was awesome," he pointed out. "They also show great interest in me."

"I really like the tradition (at Nebraska) and the fan base. I like how people love Husker football. Also, I really do like Coach Riley and Cavanaugh and the history those two have together."
