La Porte City (Iowa) Union athlete Trev Hadachek started his recruitment early with a scholarship offer before his junior season. The class of 2013 prospect will start early on making college game day visits this fall as well, with a trip slated to an in-state program this weekend.
"I'm going to Iowa State versus UNI this weekend up at Iowa State," Hadachek said. "I got invited to that, so me, my dad and my brother are going up for the game. My dad and their receivers coach were friends. I've been keeping in touch with the defensive backs coach. At their camp he talked to me a lot."
Hadachek has been in touch with Iowa State since his camp appearance in Ames earlier this summer. He is also hearing from other in-state programs Iowa and Northern Iowa and has followed each growing up.

"I've always liked all of them," Hadachek said. "My family has season tickets to UNI. My mom graduated from UNI and so did my dad. My favorite team growing up was always Notre Dame."
Hadachek has also been receiving interest from programs like Arkansas and Minnesota. He picked up his first scholarship offer from Eastern Illinois.
This weekend's visit to Iowa State will be the first of several for Hadacheck. He is looking at college schedules and seeing what games he will be able to make it to this fall.
"Because Eastern Illinois offered me a scholarship, I am trying to get up there sometime, but I'm not sure if I can with ACT's," Hadachek said. "I'm going to an Iowa game with a friend and I'm looking at Minnesota for a game too."
The 5-11, 170-pound Hadachek is playing quarterback and safety for Union High this fall. In his team's opener this past weekend, Hadachek accounted for 100 yards of total offense and threw for a touchdown in a 20-17 win. He also tallied four tackles, including one for loss, from his safety position.
Hadachek also has returns punts for his high school team and could fill that role in college. Whether he lands on offense or defense at the next level, though, is yet to be determined.
"I prefer to play on the offensive side of the ball, but it's wherever I get the opportunity to play," Hadachek said. "It's looking like wide receiver or defensive back."
