Visit puts Iowa in the lead for Texas corner

Texas cornerback Darius Thomas is back home in the Dallas area this morning after making an official visit to the University of Iowa over the weekend. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Thomas, who attends Cedar Hill High School, enjoyed his stay in Iowa City.

Thomas arrived in Iowa early Saturday morning and watched the Hawkeyes beat Wisconsin 38-16 in Kinnick Stadium. The Texas native said the game day atmosphere was one of the highlights on the trip, along with getting to know the coaching staff.
