Iowa Leads for New Jersey Offensive Lineman

It's a well known fact the the Iowa Hawkeyes are searching the country high and low for offensive line talent. This past weekend, they hosted a pair of New Jersey trenchmen in Jeremy Zuttah and Nyere Aumaitre. While neither player committed to Iowa during their visit, Aumaitre told Hawkeyenation.com and The Insiders recruiting analyst that the Hawkeyes are now his leader.

Iowa hosted two talented offensive lineman from New Jersey this weekend in Jeremy Zuttah and Nyere Aumaitre.

While they did not land a commitment from either of them, Aumaitre says the Hawkeyes are the school to beat.

"I loved my visit," said Aumaitre. "They had everything that I'm looking for, and my high school teammate, Harold Dalton, is already committed there."

"Albert Young was my host, and he was telling me he'd like me to come block for him as well. The coaching staff was great, and all the players told me it was not a fake act they were putting on either."

"They told me they keep it real with you for the duration that you're there. I did not commit, though, as I'd like to take one more visit."

What school does Nyere have left to visit?

"I was supposed to visit North Carolina State in January, but I'm going to try and bump it up to this coming weekend. I want to get this over with. Nebraska and Tennessee are the other schools high on my list, but Iowa is my leader right now. It almost felt like I found my calling."
