Hawkeyes offer New England prospect
While the Iowa Hawkeyes have recruited the East Coast for a number of years, it is not very often they dip into the state of Massachusetts. That could change this year, however, as the coaching staff has extended an early scholarship offer to fullback/linebacker Shane DiBona from Duxbury High School.
As a junior, the 6-foot-2, 220-pound DiBona rushed for 1,090 yards and 18 touchdowns as a running back despite missing three games due to a high ankle sprain. On defense, the two-star prospect, who also competes in baseball and track, had 38 tackles from his linebacker position.
