Leidner camps at Iowa

Minnesota quarterback Mitch Leidner was among the players at Iowa's first one-day camp this weekend hoping to earn a scholarship offer from the Hawkeyes. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Leidner, who threw for 2,096 yards and 17 touchdowns last season, gives us a recap of the camp and how he thought he did, what the next step is in his recruiting, and much more.

Q: How did the Iowa camp go on Saturday?

LEIDNER: It went pretty well I thought.

Q: What kind of workout did they put you through?

LEIDNER: First, we got warmed up and then ran some sprints. I was the fastest quarterback there, so I was winning all those. Then, after that, we broke up by positions and did a bunch of quarterback drills, which I thought went well. Then we got with the wide receivers and did some routes. After that, we did some one-on-ones and then played a game of razzle dazzle football for fun. That was about it.

Q: How did you feel you threw the ball?

LEIDNER: I felt like I did really well. In the routes and the one-on-ones I was putting it on the money, so hopefully they liked what they saw.

Q: What kind of feedback did you get from the coaches?

LEIDNER: It was pretty much just good job from all of them. I talked to the recruiting coordinator, Coach Johnson, and he said to give him a call tomorrow night and he'll let me know straight up what's going on.

As a junior, Leidner completed 151 of 277 pass attempts for 2,096 yards and 17 touchdowns in leading Lakeville South High School to an 8-4 record.
