Wisnieski putting in work

Going into his freshman year at Iowa, tight end Jon Wisnieski expects to redshirt, but he is still putting in work this spring so he is in top shape when he begins his college career. We caught up with Wisnieski this week to talk about his upcoming freshman year, when he will arrive on campus this summer, his first impression of new tight ends coach D.J. Hernandez, and much more.

Q: What has this month been like as you wrap up your senior year of high school?

WISNIESKI: It's been kind of strange. You spend so much time in the Dowling community through school and different sports and then all of sudden you're not there anymore. It's a little hard to get used to, but it's been good. We actually finished up on May 17 and then we had graduation the next week.

Q: What are your plans right now for the summer as far as going out to Iowa City?

WISNIESKI: I am going up the week of June 10 and I'll be lifting and running with the team those first couple of days and then I have orientation and will be lifting in the morning that Thursday and Friday too. After that week, I'm heading home and then I still haven't decided if I'll be back in July or not. I might go for another week in July too. The rest of the summer, I'm pretty much just going to be at home until camp starts. I talked to a lot of guys and they said if you're not going to take any summer classes, you might as well enjoy the summer that you have and do the workouts at home.

As a senior, Wisnieski finished with 24 catches for 234 yards and four touchdowns in leading West Des Moines Dowling to a 9-3 record. Last July, the three-star prospect committed to Iowa over scholarship offers from Nebraska, Iowa State, Purdue, Kansas State, Ole Miss, and Northern Illinois.
