A Big Ten battle is brewing for Green Bay (Wisc.) offensive tackle Jack Plumb after the Hawkeyes opened up the floodgates a few weeks ago. As has been the case for a handful of prospects lately, Iowa sent Plumb his first offer and it was quickly followed by a few others.
Not only has Iowa offered Plumb, but now Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Arizona State have joined the fray as well. The Hawkeyes were the first to jump in for him and extended him a scholarship in-person on an unofficial visit. He was back in Iowa City on Thursday.
"It went really well," Plumb said to Scout. "I liked it a lot."
Plumb offered more details about his visit to see Kirk Ferentz and the Hawkeyes once again.
"I liked the feeling when I was on campus and talking with the coaches," he shared. "It was great to hear what they had to say and to see the sense of family. It was all really nice."
The highly-touted and now highly-sought-after offensive lineman did reveal a bit of his conversations with the Iowa coaching staff during Thursday's visit.
"I talked to coach Tim (Polasek) a lot and it was really easy to talk to him," Plumb pointed out. "We have been talking for a while and I really liked talking with coach (Kirk) Ferentz as well."
"They said they were really interested and loved the progress that I've made already," he added. "They mentioned the upside I have a lot."
What are the next steps in the recruiting cycle for Plumb? He gave us an indication on what to expect next.
"I'm going to try to get to both Wisconsin and Minnesota but I don't have any dates set as of now," he admitted. "I'd like to make my decision before my senior season starts. That's been the plan but I'll make it as soon as I know and feel comfortable with it. Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa are all equal right now."
