Vandenberg makes official visit

One day after committing to the Hawkeyes, quarterback James Vandenberg made his way to Iowa City for his official visit this weekend. The 6-foot-2, 176-pound Vandenberg, who led Keokuk to a state championship this year, had a great two days on campus.

Vandenberg's host on the official visit was Oskaloosa native Tyler Sash. The quarterback was also able to spend time with several other current players, including many of the Iowa natives.
