The Iowa Hawkeyes have put much importance on the signing of one speed WR in this recruiting class that can also make an impact on special teams. The Hawkeyes found their top priority in Mayflower, AR WR Herb Grigsby.
"Iowa is a wonderful place to be," Herb stated to HTO.com in the midst of a relaxing Sunday evening. "I know it is a place that I can fit in. Coach Erb has called me and kept me up-to-date on how the WR's are progressing daily. You can tell by the performance on television how they are coming along."
So did the victory in Ann Arbor help place Iowa in an even more rosy picture for Herb?
"The game was great. It was very exciting. I thought they were going to give it up early, but they persevered. Brad Banks played very well."
"It showed how good of a team they are," Grigsby added. "It is a team that is only going to get better as Coach Ferentz has brought them from the bottom to the top."
Recently, as announced on HTO.com, Herb and Arkansas went their mutual ways after Herb has expressed interest in other schools, including an official visit to Iowa and an unofficial visit to Ole' Miss. Has the opening of his recruitment changed his philosophy at all?
"It just didn't work out. We were both looking at two different aspects. I spoke with them last Tuesday, and I do not expect I'll be hearing from them again."
In fact, with his recent de-commitment, Herb has also set-up another visit to Iowa City on a weekend that is already looking promising.
"I will be unofficially visiting Iowa City on November 9th when they play Northwestern. My mother went to summer football camp with me, and my brother attended the official visit with me. My father has never seen Iowa City so he will be accompanying me along with my mother and brother once again. Coach Ferentz told me they have a big-time OL prospect visiting that weeekend, also."
Will Herb be visiting any other schools in the near future?
Herb is a very exciting performer on the field that has yet to see his best playing days. Right now, you can place Herb as one of Iowa's top priorities. HTO.com will keep Hawk fans informed of how his unofficial visit occurs.
