Florida DE Approaching Cutting Day

Scout.com 4-star projected linebacker Curt Maggitt will be cutting his list very soon. Where does Iowa stand? Come inside as HawkeyeInsider.com's Josh Harvey catches up with the Florida recruit.

Curt Maggitt's list is about to get smaller, but who will be still on it is a mystery. Dwyer High standout (FL) has double digit offers, but remains open at this point.

"I haven't really taken the time to narrow things down yet, but I want the list to be shorter by the time season starts," said Maggitt who has not thought much about recruiting this summer. "My brother (Iowa State DL Roosevelt Maggitt ) is coming home tomorrow night, and we will probably sit down and talk about it. Then I can try to decide sometime this fall."

Maggitt, who projects to play either DE or linebacker at the next level, recorded 13 sacks last season. At 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds, Maggitt has the body frame to add a lot of weight according to scouts.

Iowa offered Maggitt early, hoping to get the jump on schools like Florida, LSU, and Alabama, but appear to be on the edge of making his cut list.

"I haven't really been talking with them much. I get a lot of letters and stuff, but really haven't stayed in touch," said the 2011 prospect. "I'm definitely wanting to take a visit. It's probably a school that I will check out when I visit my brother in Ames. I can go over to Iowa City from there."

So what is Maggitt looking for in a school?

"I definitely think the area is going to be huge for me. I need to fill comfortable and have people around me that make me feel like home. I want coaches that do the same," said the soon to be senior.

Dwyer went 14-1 last season, losing their first game en route to a state champion season. Maggitt was named 1st team All-State, something he hopes to accomplish again this season. The Eagles should be strong again in 2010, but do lose some key players from last year's squad.

"It's all about how we are going to come together on the field. We have a lot of talent, but we are pretty young. So hopefully things come together," said Maggitt.
