Well, the house may be divided in more ways than one in the coming months.
Colin Sandeman's talent on the football field has led to both the Cyclones and Hawkeyes laying offers for a scholarship on the table. The Hawkeyes doing so this past weekend during its' annual Junior Day and FanFest activities.
"They (the Hawkeyes) did offer me a scholarship last weekend. I had a lot of fun while there. They showed us the highlight tape and then Coach Ferentz talked to us before a tour of the football facilities." Sandeman stated.
"Iowa and Iowa State are the only schools I have offers from right now. It is so early now; I am not really sure (how it will turn out). Last night, I got a message from one of the Purdue coaches. Different colleges have been calling my coaches for tapes and transcripts."
As for who his allegiance lay with as a young kid? "I always cheered for Iowa when I grew up, " Colin proclaimed. "But now, I kind of like both schools (Iowa and Iowa State) because they both offer good things."
He has had the chance to run into other Iowa recruiting possibilities along the road. "I have gotten to know Tyler Sash (Oskaloosa) pretty well, and met Jordan Bernstine (Des Moines) this last weekend. At the game on Saturday (Iowa vs. Michigan basketball), I sat next to Caleb Walter (West Branch). I have seen a lot of Iowa guys, and they are all down to Earth."
No matter which school Sandeman pledges his allegiance to next season, there is one thing that is for certain: They will be getting a player who will be a one-team guy.
We will speak with Sandeman again shortly to give you a great look into the life of arguably the best Iowa prep in the Class of 2007.
