St. Louis teammates visit Iowa City

St. Louis teammates Don Shumpert and Christian Kirksey each earned a scholarship offer from Iowa shortly after attending the Hawkeyes' camp in mid June. This past weekend, the Hazelwood East duo made their way back to Iowa City to talk with the coaches and watch the team at work in pre-season camp.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Shumpert met with Iowa defensive backs coach Phil Parker as the Hawkeyes project him at free safety in college. Kirksey, on the other hand, is a 6-foot-2, 200-pound outside linebacker prospect for Iowa and met with linebackers coach Darrell Wilson.

Kirksey currently holds scholarship offers from Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Shumpert also has offers from Iowa and Minnesota to go along with one from Illinois as well. Both players said on Sunday that the Hawkeyes and Gophers are currently the two schools at the top of their list.
