Just three days ago, Chargrin Falls (Ohio) Kenston inside linebacker Anton Narinskiy said he was leaning heavily toward Iowa. But now he’s more than leaning.
Narinskiy confirmed to Rivals100.com and in published reports that he committed to the Hawkeyes on Wednesday, picking the Hawks over Boston College, Maryland and Stanford. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound three-star prospect had offers from all of the teams and visited both BC and Iowa.
“There is an amazing sense of pride in the Iowa program and the people know that it’s a strong program and they support it,” Narinskiy, ranked as the nation’s No. 38 inside linebacker by Riavls.com, said.
“The coaches are great. The facilities are great. It was just the right place for me.”
Narinskiy is a native of Russia. He moved to America with his family when he was 7 years old. Though Narinskiy's Kenston squad finished just 4-6 this year, he recorded 165 tackles and had two interceptions.
