Wheaton (Ill.) St. Francis junior offensive lineman Kyle Bosch has already reeled in ten scholarship offers from BCS Conference schools, and he has been active this fall making visits to those programs. On Saturday he was in Iowa City to see the Hawkeyes host Michigan State.
"That was the first game I've been down there for," Bosch noted. "I went down there this summer for the camp, and that's when they offered me so it was cool to get back down there.
"I got a great vibe being down there. The fans were great, the stadium was very nice and everything was really well kept. It was cool to look around and get to know more about it."
It was a late morning kickoff on Saturday in Iowa City, and Bosch made sure he was down there early enough to get some face time in with the Iowa coaching staff.
"I got to talk to Coach Morgan for a long time - probably 20-25 minutes during their breakfast thing," Bosch said. "He was really just promoting the University and just telling me what he liked about my playing style."
Iowa was one of the first schools to offer Bosch. His latest tenders came in from Michigan and Northwestern on the same day last month, bringing his total to ten and he is now taking stock of the options he has in front of him.
"I'm kind of letting it come as it goes," Bosch said. "I am looking into the schools more now and weighing out my options. I don't know if I am going to make a decision anytime soon, but I am kind of getting to see who sticks out the most and why they stick out."
At least three of the schools that have offered Bosch have solidified their standing on his interest list.
"I'm really excited about what Stanford, Michigan and Iowa have going on right now," Bosch said. "They really have impressed me so far with what they have to offer."
Bosch's junior season has ended with his team finishing the year at 8-3. He was able to visit Iowa due to his weekends now being free, and he also has a Nov. 26 visit planned out to Stanford to see the Cardinal host Notre Dame.
