Having talented pass rushers is always a key to having a dominant defense. The Hawkeyes have had their fair share in the past, but 2018 Huber Heights, OH native, Alex Reigelsperger could be the next one to make his way to Iowa City.
"Iowa is a great place, my family and I really enjoyed our trip," he told Scout.
Reigelsperger and his family visited for Iowa's win over Michigan back in November when the Hawkeyes beat the Wolverines on a last second field goal from true freshman, Keith Duncan.
"I stormed the field with everyone," he exclaimed. "I was impressed with the facilities, the amazing fans, and the crazy atmosphere," Reigelsperger admitted.
At 6'4" and 237 pounds he already possesses a good frame for a defensive end. He's been primarily working with Iowa's recruiting coordinator, Kelvin Bell and has nothing but good things to say about him.
"He's a great coach and a better person." he acknowledged when asked about Coach Bell. "I can tell he cares for me and my decision further than just football and Iowa," he said.
The Hawkeyes were actually one of the first schools to extend a scholarship to Reigelsperger and he is taking note.
"It's a great program, they have a dominant history of winning and sending people to the NFL. Along with the amazing facilities and great fans, it's really a place I could see myself honestly," he admitted in regards to the Hawkeyes.
"Coach Bell and everyone there tells me that I would fit amazing in the defense, which is why they were one of the first schools to offer me. They said they saw "it" and they loved it," he commented on his fit into the Iowa defensive scheme.
Right now, Cincinnati, West Virginia, Michigan State, Penn State, Rutgers, Iowa, and Kentucky are atop Alex's list and he does plan on making his decision in mid-to-late May.
Alex cited that May 25th would be his decision date, but he is thinking about moving it up a week in order to have it at his school.
He does plan on making a return trip to Iowa City during the spring before he comes to his final conclusion.
