Fiedorowicz talks about his decision

This week, four-star tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz made the switch. The U.S. Army All American decommitted from Illinois and gave his verbal pledge to the Hawkeyes after making an official visit to Iowa City. The 6-foot-7, 240-pound Fiedorowicz, who caught 44 passes for 921 yards and 15 touchdowns this season, talks in-depth about his decision, his future at Iowa, and much more.

Q: First, tell me about your decision to go to Iowa.

FIEDOROWICZ: Well, I spent the weekend up there obviously. I loved all the coaches and they've been around there for about ten years. Then I went out with some of the guys and had a really good time. That pretty much decided it really.

Q: Did you decide on Sunday as you left Iowa or was it after you got home?

FIEDOROWICZ: I would say Saturday night actually. I was hanging out with the players and it seemed like I fit in really well.

Q: Who were some of the players you got to spend some time with?

FIEDOROWICZ: Riley Reiff, Bryan Bulaga, Tony Moeaki, and then some of the other recruits that were there.

Q: Is recruiting all over for you now?

FIEDOROWICZ: Yeah, it's done for sure. I know it's the right fit. I've been there five times now and every time it's been really fun. This is for real this time.

Q: What was it about Iowa that when you reopened things you focused on them pretty much?

FIEDOROWICZ: Well, that was always my No. 1 team up until I visited Illinois and ended up committing. Coach Erb was still calling me and wanted me to visit and it seemed like they cared a lot. Back in my sophomore year, I know they were the first one to really start recruiting me and showing a lot of interest.
