Decision day is right around the corner for Sioux City (Iowa) Bishop Heelan four-star all-purpose back Brandon Wegher.
According to Jason Pratt, the Activities Director at Bishop Heelan, Wegher will announce his decision around 8:30 p.m. Saturday after his team's scrimmage at Memorial Field in Sioux City.
The scrimmage starts at 6:45 p.m. and following that Wegher will announce what school he is attending.
Wegher, who is 5-foot-11 and 206-pounds, has scholarship offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Penn State, Texas Tech, Wisconsin and others.
Wegher hasn't talked openly about his final schools for a while now, but recent speculation has focused on three schools – Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas.
Most local observers believe that Iowa and Nebraska are the two teams to beat, but it might be tough to overcome the Hawkeyes in their own backyard.
Wegher is ranked as the nation's No. 15 all-purpose back and the No. 3 player in Iowa. As a junior, he rushed for 2,334 yards in 13 games. He also had 28 tackles, one interception and nine pass breakups on defense.
