College recruiters should get to know Omaha Skutt's Blake Anderson as the spring and summer camp season commences.
"I liked how the coaches have been there so long and the facilities are really nice," Anderson said. "The weight room was really nice."
Iowa hasn't offered Anderson a scholarship yet, but there does seem to be significant interest coming from the Hawkeyes.
"They said they were interested and said they would possibly be stopping by Skutt in the future to talk with coach (Matt) Turman more about me."

Anderson also attended South Dakota State's junior day on Jan. 26. He took game-day visits to Nebraska and South Dakota State in the fall. He is planning on attending North Dakota's junior day on March 1.
Anderson's only scholarship offer is from Division II Minnesota State. Nebraska, Iowa and Wyoming have shown interest from the FBS level. FCS schools South Dakota State, North Dakota, South Dakota and Northern Iowa are recruiting him, and he also lists Division II schools Northwest Missouri State and Augustana as potential suitors.
He will have a busy summer schedule heading into his senior season.
"I'm planning on going to Iowa, Nebraska, Iowa State, South Dakota State, North Dakota and Kansas State camps this summer," Anderson said. "I'm excited to learn different things and develop a relationship with the different coaches."
Stability with the coaching staff will be important to Anderson when choosing a school.
"Longevity with the coaching staff is important to me," Anderson said. "What feels right and feels like home when I visit there is also important. I want to be comfortable with the location of the school and the staff that is there."
Anderson plays offensive tackle for the SkyHawks but most likely translates as an interior offensive lineman at the collegiate level.
"Iowa said I would most likely be a guard, and South Dakota State said I could play anywhere on the offensive line," Anderson said.
