Largo DB Jamarious Boatwright has offers from Presbyterian, Stony Brook and Youngstown State. He has visited two of the three and will trip to Youngstown State this week.

Meantime, another program has entered the mix – Iowa.

“Their coaches came down, talked to him and saw film,” Largo coach Rick Rodriguez said. “They’re showing a lot of interest. They spent about two hours with him.”

A 5-foot-9, 167-pound senior, Boatwright projects to be a cornerback.

He has a nice link to the Hawkeyes. Former Largo star Marcus Paschal, a one-time Iowa player now in the NFL, has put in a good word with his old college coaches.

“He let the coaches know about (Boatwright),” Rodriguez said.
