Pugh Updates Progress

Jevon Pugh, a 5-10 RB out of Naples (Fla.) HS took an official visit to Iowa City last week, and is inching closer to a final decision on his future. Read more in this premium recruiting update.

Jevon Pugh, who was named offensive player of the year by the Naples Daily News after rushing for over 1800 yards as a senior, spent last weekend in Iowa City after receiving an offer.

"It went well," Pugh said. "I liked it a lot, it's nice. I enjoyed my time up there."

On his visit, Pugh spent some time with the coaching staff, hearing about how he could contribute to the offense at Iowa.

"I talked to the coaches, and we talked schemes, the plays and things," he said. "How I could fit in and help out, stuff like that."

When asked to describe what type of runner he was, a downhill guy or a cutback runner, Pugh hesitated.

"I don't know how to describe myself," Pugh said. "I do a little bit of both, so I don't really know that I'm any certain type of back."

Pugh said that despite his visit to Maryland this weekend, Iowa still leads over Maryland, and Toledo. He is also considering Kansas State, who may or may not be a factor in his final decision. All four schools have offered.

Pugh may take another visit this coming weekend, but hasn't confirmed that as of yet, and sounded doubtful.

Like so many other recruits, Pugh is expected to announce his decision on National Letter of Intent Signing Day, February 7th. We'll check in with him as he makes he decision.
