Tampa DB takes visit and chooses Iowa

Dane Belton’s trip to Iowa this past weekend will certainly not be his last.

It’s actually the first of many, because the Jesuit (Tampa, FL) defensive back will be calling Iowa City home.

Following the official visit, Belton revealed a verbal commitment to the Hawkeyes on Monday.

He is among two other class of 2019 prospects to name the Big Ten program as their future school over the last week, including Warren Central (Indianapolis, IN) offensive lineman Justin Britt and Belleville (Belleville, MI) defensive end Jalen Hunt.

Earlier this month, Iowa received a commitment from Cherry Creek (Glenwood, CO) quarterback Alex Padilla.

“Coaching stability, atmosphere around the university, bond with current players as well as other recruits,” Belton said. “And development of players as well as defensive backs.”

Prior to the the incoming senior’s recent time on campus, he was at Pitt nearly a week ago along with Georgia Tech, Ohio State and Indiana during the first few weeks of June, and holds scholarship offers from the Panthers, Yellow Jackets and Hoosiers.

The Hawkeyes extended their offer last month as well as Louisville and Syracuse.

Belton made it to Miami (FL) in March and Southern Cal and UCLA during April, and also holds offers from Vanderbilt, UMass, UCF, Colorado State, Missouri, South Dakota, Temple, Tulane, West Virginia, Bowling Green, Samford, Cincinnati, Marshall, Western Kentucky, Toledo and USF.

“I don’t have any plans to visit other schools right now,” he said. “But some schools expressed they will still recruit me hard.”
