DB Geno Stone Close to Final Decision

Pennsylvania defensive back Geno Stone close to flipping to Iowa?

Iowa was able to net an official visit from Kent State defensive back commit Geno Stone over the weekend. The New Castle, Pennsylvania native was offered by Iowa earlier in the week and is honing in on a final decision of where he will play his college football.

"I will make my college decision on Monday or Tuesday," he said to Scout. "It just depends."

Stone is on his way back home with a lot of discussion to do regarding what his college future and football career will look like. 

"It was a great trip," Stone shared about his visit to Iowa City. "I liked the facilities a lot and the coaches and players. My host was Amani Hooker but I was around the safeties, the linebackers, the defensive ends, and some of the offensive players. It lived up to the hype."

It certainly sounded like a positive from the Hawkeyes' standpoint according to a tweet that Stone sent out before he left the campus. 

"Iowa was one of the best experiences of my life," he posted in a tweet. "But back to New Castle as I got a lot of thinking to do."

The biggest part of the trip was learning more about Iowa in general and finding out more about the football program. Stone was able to accomplish both of those things.

"I learned they do everything the right way," he stated. "They're a hard-working program that play with a chip on their shoulder."

Now comes the wait as Iowa hopes to get his verbal pledge on either Monday or Tuesday. Signing Day is Wednesday.
