Drew Tate to pick Iowa

Even though he visited Baylor this weekend, it appears Baytown (Texas) Lee record-setting quarterback Drew Tate is preparing to commit to the University of Iowa.
"I'm going to see if Hawaii still wants me to visit this (next) weekend because I told them I would," Tate said moments ago. "But if for whatever reason they don't want me to, then I'm going to call Coach (Kirk) Ferentz and commit (to Iowa)."
Tate visited Iowa in late December, and has also visited Houston and Texas A&M, as well as Baylor. He had originally committed to Texas A&M as a high school junior, but the coaching change in College Station prompted Tate to look elsewhere for his college choice.
"I'll probably know something in the next couple of hours," Tate said of the impending commitment. "But it could be tomorrow. It just depends on when I'm able to talk to the coach."
Tate is ranked as a four star recruit and the No. 14 quarterback in the country by Rivals.com.
The 6-foot, 175-pound product has placed an indelible mark on the record books in Texas.
During his four-year varsity career, he completed 970 of 1,576 attempts for 12,183 yards, 113 touchdowns and 50 interceptions. All of those marks are Texas schoolboy records.
