Sherer Gains Another Big Ten Offer

Indiana high school prep quarterback already had offers in hand from Illinois and Indiana, and after this weekend you can add Iowa to the list. Sherer and his family were in Iowa City this weekend and took part in Saturday's junior day and Sunday's Nike camp. Sherer talks about his visit with Iowa coaches Kirk Ferentz and Ken O'Keefe in this report.

One of the top quarterbacks in Big Ten country this upcoming fall, Dustin Sherer received his third scholarship offer from within the conference this weekend while making a visit to the University of Iowa.

"It was everything that I expected," said Sherer. "I went to the Notre Dame Adidas camp last weekend, and spoke to a few players that told me Iowa was a great place to visit. I went into it with that mindset, and I am not one bit disappointed."

The highlight of the visit was a sit down session Sherer shared with Hawkeye offensive coordinator, Ken O'Keefe, as well as head coach Kirk Ferentz.

"I'd like to make my decision by the end of the summer, but Coach Ferentz was honest with me in telling me there are advantages and disadvantages to doing so. I will make my mind up when I feel right, but I came away with great comfort in Iowa. Coach O'Keefe gave me a test of sorts in watching film with him in calling out audibles and blitzes, and I came away with a perfect score."

With offers already in hand from Illinois and Indiana, it appears the rest of the Big Ten could be coming with offers soon.

"I had every Big Ten school stop by, except for Penn State and Northwestern. Notre Dame is showing a lot of interest, and Wisconsin was watching me at the Adidas camp last weekend. I'm planning to attend one day camps at Michigan, Michigan State, and Purdue."
