Dublin back from official visit to Big Ten country

Sarasota, Fla., defensive end Walter Dublin is back from his first official visit. Dublin was in Big Ten country for a visit with the Iowa Hawkeyes.
"It went great," Dublin said. "It was really good. There was a lot I liked about it.
"The campus is amazing. The people are great. The town really supports Iowa football.
"I don't need to say much about the Iowa football program. It speaks for itself. And the coaching staff is second to none."
But Dublin is far from finished with his official visits.
"I'm in the process of scheduling a visit to Minnesota," he said. "Hopefully it will be this coming weekend. And I'll definitely visit Ohio State.
"The other two are up in the air. Florida, Clemson, Ole Miss, West Virginia, there's a bunch in there.
"I don't have a favorite. I have to go to all of them and compare them. But after that visit, Iowa moved up."
The 6-foot-3 and 235-pound Dublin has 10 plus sacks and four blocked punts as Sarasota has won seven of eight games.
