Iowa Offers In-State Defensive End Levi Duwa

Iowa sent out an offer after the Spring Game to in-state defensive end Levi Duwa. Does he join the class?

There was some anticipation that Iowa would send out a new offer during the weekend of Spring Game and it has now come to fruition. The Hawkeyes, as expected, offered Wellman (Iowa) Mid-Prairie defensive end Levi Duwa. He's a 6-foot-3, 230 pound edge player that already held an offer from Minnesota.

The offer from his home-state team gave him instant jubilation.

"It was a great feeling," Duwa said. "I looked at my parents and we all just had huge smiles on our faces. It's awesome knowing that my dream from when I was little is coming true."

The opportunity to play for the Hawkeyes is certainly a dream come true for Duwa but the visit to Kinnick Stadium was just as exciting.

"I had a good feeling about the visit this weekend," he shared. "I felt like I got a lot of one-on-one time with some of the coaches so it felt good."

The next step is what Duwa will do with his new offer. It's the prized one he had been in search of. He left little doubt that this scholarship extension has a lot of meaning to him.

"Yes, more than likely (I will be making a decision soon)," he admitted. "I think I'll be making the choice pretty soon. Iowa is my leader."

If Duwa were to jump on board with Iowa and make his verbal pledge, he'd be the tenth commitment for the Hawkeyes in the 2017 class. It is a class that has a lot of momentum and has already reeled in a few headliners such as running back Eno Benjamin and defensive end A.J. Epenesa.
