After a visit from Iowa defensive line coach Kelvin Bell to Mt. Vernon High School on Tuesday, Class of 2023 tight end George Burhenn has a new scholarship offer from the Hawkeyes.

"We had a little combine workout at the school today where college coaches could come watch and there were a lot of coaches there," said Burhenn. "The Iowa defensive line coach was there and when I got home he called and offered me."

At 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, there is a lot to like about the Indiana native, who finished last season with 28 catches for 443 yards and five touchdowns as a junior.

"I think he liked my athleticism and my speed and the high ceiling I have," Burhenn said.

Overall, Iowa is offer No. 8 overall for Burhenn as the Hawkeyes join Iowa State, Army, Air Force, Nevada, Ball State, Ohio, and Indiana State on his list.

"It’s been crazy," said Burhenn. "It’s just a dream come true with all of this happening."

Burhenn, who visited Iowa State in March, hopes to schedule a trip to Iowa City soon.

"I’ll definitely want to get out there," he said.
