Early Answering Questions on Camp Circuit

With three WR verbal commitments in the Class of 2011, one wonders how many more Iowa will take at the position. It appears that Chance Early is in the mix for a Hawkeye offer and has impressed other schools at which he's camped this summer. Quinn's son also recently picked up his first scholarship offer. Find out the latest on Chance's recruitment in this Hawkeye Insider update.

Chance Early set out to prove the doubters wrong this summer. So far, he has appeared to make good on his goal.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound receiver from San Diego recently picked up his first scholarship offer - San Jose State. He's received favorable feedback after camps at Iowa, Arizona and Arizona State.

"I've actually done real well at these camps," the son of former Hawkeye and NFL wideout Quinn Early said.

The young Early camped in Iowa City last weekend and was asked to call back recruiting coordinator Eric Johnson Wednesday night.

"He said he was impressed with how much I've improved and gotten bigger and faster," said Early, who camped at Iowa last summer. "He told me that they're going to keep a close eye on me and watch me this season. It was really good to hear. I‘ve put in a lot of work."

Arizona provided Early with similar feedback.

"The wide receiver coach and Coach Mike Stoops (former Hawkeye) said they liked how much I improved, got bigger and looked more smooth," Early said. "They seem to have a lot of interest."

Early didn't get to perform much at the Arizona State camp. He was nursing a sore hamstring.

Early has scheduled a visit to Stanford on July 22 and will attend a junior day at Nevada at the end of that month.

Arizona and Iowa have told Early that they like what they see, but they want to see more this fall.

"This season, I'm going to have to perform really well," Early said. "Most of the coaches have said they're interested and they like me but they want to see how me and my team do this fall. Next season is a big season for me."
