"Lance gave Iowa a verbal commitment, yesterday, when they told him that his offer was firm," head coach Sean Callahan stated. "Until yesterday, Iowa had not given the indication the offer was firm, but Lance is making good progress academically, and we all believe he should have no problem qualifying. Iowa plans for him to come play safety."
Scout.com was the first to deliver the name of Lance Tillison after Hurricane Katrina forced him to make the move from Slidell, Louisana to Armwood-Seffner High School where his guidance under Coach Callahan helped lead him to the chance to play for the Hawkeyes.
