It took a pair of Big Ten official visits during December to help shape Dallas Craddieth’s college decision.
The Hazelwood Central (Florissant, MO) defensive back had spent time on the campuses of Iowa and Illinois.
And at the end of the day, Craddieth see’s his future in Iowa City due to multiple factors.
“I just felt most comfortable there,” he said. “I really got along well with the players there.”
Earlier this month, both the coaching staffs of the Hawkeyes and Illini made in-home visits to the 2018 prospect along with staff members from Big Ten programs Nebraska and Indiana.
There was a late push of ACC interest as well following a scholarship offer from Louisville in the first week of November.
Craddieth, who signed a national letter of intent with Iowa on Wednesday, made trips to both Big 12 and SEC country with unofficial visits to Iowa State and Ole Miss this past summer.
He holds a total of 22 offers which also includes Michigan State, Kansas State, Kansas, Kentucky, Iowa State, Memphis, Minnesota, Missouri, Northwestern, Ole Miss, Purdue, Syracuse, UNC, Vanderbilt, Western Michigan, Wisconsin and Yale.
