Morrow Enjoys Iowa Visit

Diauntae Morrow took an official visit to Iowa City this weekend to investigate the Hawkeyes. It took longer than he thought to arrive, but read his thoughts on Iowa City once he got here and more in this premium recruiting update.

Diauntae Morrow was one of five Ohio prospects in Iowa City this weekend. He joined Jermale Hines, Lebron Daniel, Zach Furlong, and Erique Robertson.

The recruits had a tough time making it to Iowa City, Morrow said they were delayed in Chicago for over four hours, which meant a late arrival in Iowa City, shortening the visit slightly.

Once me made it to town, the Hawkeye coaching staff made their pitch to Morrow, which included the opportunity to possibly earn some early playing time at multiple positions.

"(They told me) they're not that deep at my position," said Morrow, who is being recruited as a safety. "They think I have the versatility to play nickel back or corner back if needed."

One school Morrow is hoping to receive an offer from soon is West Virginia.

"They're supposed to be coming to visit me sometime this week for an in-home visit," Morrow said.

If that offer comes through, that doesn't automatically put them at the top, however. Morrow said Iowa and Indiana are at the top of his current list. If Mountaineers choose not to offer, Morrow said he would likely have his decision before the end of the year. If they do offer, Morrow would take a visit, and be unlikely to make his selection until January.

Morrow said he would rate the visit an 8.5 out of 10, citing the weather and travel problems as the reasons for the less-than-perfect score.

Morrow has a visit to Indiana scheduled for December 8th, and no other visits currently set up.
