New Jersey DB visits Iowa

If the Hawkeyes were handing out an award for the recruit that traveled the farthest to attend their junior day on Saturday, chances are it would have gone to New Jersey native Donavon Harris. The 6-foot-0, 170-pound defensive back from The Hun School in Princeton talks about his visit this weekend, where the interest in Iowa comes from, and much more.

Q: Were you the recruit that traveled the farthest for the junior day today?

HARRIS: Yeah, I think so. I didn't see anybody else from New Jersey.

Q: Tell me about it. What were your thoughts and what all did you get to do?

HARRIS: It was wonderful. I got to see Coach White for a first time in a while and I met the head coach, Coach Ferentz. It was just a great experience. It was my first time traveling to the Midwest and it was a little slower pace, but Iowa City is great. It's a great college football town and a great city overall. It was excellent.

Q: What kind of led up to you deciding to fly out there for the weekend?

HARRIS: Last spring, Coach White came in and he was really interested in me. He's the running backs coach and special teams coordinator at the University of Iowa He's been sending me mail and sent me an invitation, so I e-mailed him back and we've been staying in contact.
