Iowa gets one from NJ

The Iowa Hawkeyes used New Jersey natives Albert Young and Miguel Merrick to lure another top player from the Garden State to the Big 10. Who is it?
"I committed to Iowa on my visit," said 5-foot-11, 190-pound running back Shonn Green from Atco (N.J.) Winslow Township. "I just felt it in my heart, it's hard to explain. You know how you get a feeling about something sometimes? That's how it was with me and Iowa."
Green, who also had offers from Rutgers, Syracuse, Wisconsin, Clemson, Minnesota and others, is looking forward to becoming a Hawkeye.
"The people out there were great and that team is heading in the right direction," he said. "I can't wait to get started. They want me as a running back, which is what I prefer."
Shonn finished the season with 1270-yards and 14 touchdowns, while leading his team to a 7-4 record.
