QB McNutt Favors Iowa

Florissant (Mo.) quarterback Marvin McNutt (6-3, 185, 4.6) said Iowa leads solidly over Indiana and Missouri. The Central High School prospect said his favorite three have offered, with four other offers from Kansas, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Minnesota.

"I'm athletic and I throw pretty hard," Marvin McNutt said. "I'm working on my mental awareness on the field. I do that by watching films, practicing with my coaches, and learning techniques and listening to advice when I'm at camps.

"Iowa has a great program. They've been to the bowl games after January 1 for the past four years. I get along with the coaching staff well because they're competitive like me, and they make me feel at home. I visited during March for their junior day and in June for camp," McNutt said.

"Indiana's coaches are the family type. I went to their camp in early June, and the last few years they've really been building up their program," he said.

"Missouri is close to home so I would be able to play in front of a lot of family. I took a visit unofficially in May, and I've also played basketball and baseball tournaments there.

"I'm being recruited to play basketball from small schools, but I probably won't take up a basketball offer. My future is in football and if I go to a major college with a football scholarship, I won't be playing any basketball in college," he said. McNutt is a shooting guard and small forward, and averages 20 points per game.

"I thought about committing before the season, but then I thought again, and I might decide during the season. I want enough time to think about my decision and see what else happens."

McNutt scored 12 TDs last season and had approximately 1300 yards passing.

He reports a 3.2 core GPA and a 20 ACT.
