With the recent wave of Iowa football fans bashing the Hawks’ current quarterback, take a look at two future Iowa men’s basketball players and what they do on the football field.
Current Dubuque Wahlert senior quarterback Eric May (6-4, 215) threw for 280 yards and a touchdown last week in a loss to Cedar Rapids Xavier. May, who hit the amazing half-court shot to win the Class 3A state basketball title last March, will join Iowa in 2009.
Chase Creekmur, a 2010 recruit from Marshalltown, threw for 307 yards and four touchdowns last week to help the Bobcats beat Newton 40-34. It was Marshalltown’s second win over Newton in the last 33 games. Creekmur is 6-6 and weighs 180 pounds.
May, who likely will play forward, joins Sioux City Heelan center Brennan Cougill (6-9, 265) as 2009 recruits. Creekmur and Cody Larson (6-9, 225 from Sioux Falls Roosevelt) as forwards in the 2010 Iowa class.
It will be interesting to see if football fans clamor for May and Creekmur to become two-sport stars when they arrive on campus.
