Supo Sanni Enjoys Official Visit

Supo Sanni officially visited Iowa City this weekend as the Iowa Hawkeyes lined up against the Illinois Fighting Illini. Read what he had to say about Dallas Clark, the Iowa crowd, and more in this premium recruiting update.

As he prepares to make his college choice, Supo Sanni spent the weekend in Iowa City, watching Iowa take on Illinois. The initial reaction from Sanni was positive.

"The atmosphere was great, there were a lot of fans there," he said. "We got to hang out with the players, the people at my position, receiver. I was able to get really in-depth with the coaching staff and what they do."

Sanni had been to Iowa a number of times, but this time, it was an official visit for the Homewood-Flossmoor WR.

"It was more than I was expecting it to be," he said of the visit. "I knew it was a college town, but it was a great environment, the people were great around there and they have a great coaching staff."

Dallas Clark, Iowa's honorary captain for the game, took time to talk with the visitors at halftime.

"We got to speak with him the whole halftime and talk about his NFL Career and his career at Iowa," he said. "I was interested in the transition from collegiate play to the NFL. I was basing all my questions on how he felt when he got to the pros, that kind of stuff."

The fan support really surprised Sanni. Iowa, despite having a 2-4 record coming into Saturday, had a very noisy and supportive crowd.

"In Iowa, there's no pro team, so the fans really appreciate what you do on the field," Sanni said. "That's one thing that Iowa had that not many other states have. They're the show in the state. Basically, no matter what they're doing, their fans are very supportive and will stick with them. "

Sanni also got a chance to speak with the quarterback, Jake Christensen and many of the current receivers, including his host, Derrell Johnson-Koulianos.

"He's really fun, really outgoing ; my type of person," he said. "They set me up with a good person. I was able to ask him all the questions I needed answered... He's playing in the same spot I would be in, with early playing. He basically answered all the questions I needed to ask."

Sanni will be taking an official visit to West Virginia next weekend, and hopes to be able to make his choice soon afterwards.
