Indiana still in play for David Kenney III


INDIANAPOLIS -- The first commitment in Iowa's 2013 class was David Kenney III (Indianapolis/Pike), but with his dad now coaching at Indiana, that commitment is not as solid as it once was.

David Kenney II took a position with Indiana as a recruiting assistant back in the summer, and his son is considering a switch to the Hoosiers.

"I don't know," Kenney III said when asked if he would end up at Indiana. "I like IU a lot, but I'm not sure yet. I still got like five months."

Kenney visited Indiana with fellow Hawkeyes commitment John Kenny (Carmel, Ind./Carmel) for the Ball State game on Sept. 15. Both players stayed the night in Bloomington.

"It was all right. They lost but it makes sense," Kenney said. "If Tre (Roberson) was playing, Tre would have single handily tore them apart on defense."

Kenney is planning to officially visit Iowa this coming weekend for its game against Minnesota.

Going into last weekend, Kenney estimates he had 25 tackles, 4.5 sacks and seven tackles for loss through five games.
