CEDAR RAPIDS — Maybe he’ll be a slot receiver. Maybe a defensive back.
For now, he’s projected as a running back. And definitely, a Hawkeye.
Cedar Rapids Kennedy’s Max White has committed to the University of Iowa football team, as a preferred walk-on.
“I’m really excited,” he told The Gazette on Wednesday. “I’ve wanted to be a Hawkeye for a while now.”
White, who served as a run-first quarterback at Kennedy, chose Iowa over similar offers from Iowa State and Nebraska.
“When I started the process, I threw out all biases,” he said. “But when I went down to Iowa, it felt like home. I think they realize I’m a versatile player, so who knows where I’ll end up (as far as position).”
White rushed for 1,400 yards (6.7 per carry) and 17 touchdowns as the Cougars finished 4-4 and reached the Class 4A quarterfinals. He also passed for 554 yards and four scores.
As a preferred walk-on, White is automatically invited to camp, along with the scholarship players, next summer instead of waiting to join the team when classes begin.
