Getting that first offer usually means a lot to a recruit. And with Cincinnati's Spencer Bono, it's no different. The Iowa Football program was the first school to reach out and offer the class of 2019 defensive lineman and he's very excited about the opportunity.
"It's a great honor to receive my first offer from Iowa," Bono admitted. "They are a great school and I love the Big Ten. I couldn't be more excited to receive this offer!"
The fact that the Hawkeyes were the first to offer is going to stick with him as well, he noted.
"It really does mean a lot," he admitted when asked how much it meant that Iowa was the first to extend an offer. "Iowa will always have a place in my heart considering they were the first to offer," he continued.
However, he said he doesn't have any plans of jumping the gun just yet.
He plans on getting to Iowa City for a visit at some point to check out the campus and meet the entire coaching staff.
While Iowa was the first to offer, he says that he is hearing from several other schools at this time.
Indiana, Boston College, Michigan State, West Virginia, Cincinnati, and Maryland are the other schools that have shown interest at this time.
During his sophomore season Bono racked up 45 tackles, 10 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles.
