May keeping it open

When you are one of the state's top players in both basketball and football, you often have to keep an open mind when it comes to recruiting, and that is exactly what Dubuque Wahlert athlete Eric May is doing this summer. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound May, who is currently on the road with his All Iowa Attack AAU team, is in no hurry to make a decision.

Currently, May holds scholarship offers for basketball from UNI, Saint Louis, Indiana State, and Loyola-Chicago. His AAU coach, Jake Sullivan, has also said that an offer from Butler is on the way, but it is not yet in hand according to the Class of 2009 prospect. This summer, May has been all around the country playing AAU ball as he looks to continue to raise his stock.

In Louisville, Iowa head coach Todd Lickliter was among those on hand to watch May at the Kentucky Hoopfest last week. In addition to the Hawkeyes, he is also receiving interest from Iowa State and Wichita State, among others.

For football, May is hearing primarily from Iowa, Iowa State, and UNI, but has not received a scholarship offer yet. As a dual-threat quarterback, he led Wahlert to a 6-3 record last season and has the athleticism to possibly play a couple different positions in college. The Hawkeyes are looking at him mostly at tight end, but the junior was not able to make it to Iowa's camp last month, so like other schools, the coaching staff will have to wait and evaluate senior season, which is just around the corner.

Currently, May hopes to wait until the fall before sitting down to make his college decision as far as which sport to play and ultimately which school to attend.
