"Iowa was a lot of fun," Byers said. "Everyone there is so down to earth and genuine. That's what stood out more than anything."
Byers, 6-4 and 270 pounds, is from Fort Collins (Colo.) Loveland High School. He plays center and defensive tackle for his high school team. Loveland is off to a 4-1 star and they are ranked No. 5 in 4A.
Iowa was his second official visit. He took an official visit to Ohio State (8-29) and says that the trip to Iowa was very similar.
"Hey, the fans at Iowa are just as crazy as at Ohio State. In fact, the two trips were comparable. The Iowa team chemistry is great. Iowa plays so well together and they all get along so well. Their academics are good too but so are all the teams in the Big 10."
