Welsh ready to see Iowa

Ever since Iowa offered Ohio offensive lineman Sean Welsh in early May, the Hawkeyes have been among the schools recruiting him the hardest. This week, the 6-foot-3, 275-pound Welsh will finally get a chance to make his first visit to Iowa City and says he is excited to see the program that has heard so much about recently.

"We're leaving early Tuesday morning to make the drive out there and then doing the visit on Wednesday," said Welsh. "This will be my first time out there, so I'm excited about it. I've done a lot of traveling throughout the recruiting process, so I want to see what they do differently and just see what Hawkeye football has to offer."

Since adding the Iowa offer, Welsh has stayed in close contact with new offensive line coach Brian Ferentz, who feels the three-star prospect would be a great fit for the Hawkeyes and could play either guard or tackle in college.

"I'm really comfortable with the coaches at Iowa," Welsh said. "Coach Brian Ferentz has been one of the best recruiters that I've talked to on the phone. He's been selling me on the point that they're good at sending guys like me to the NFL and he thinks that I would be a great fit there."

Along with Iowa, Welsh currently holds offers from Miami, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, and several others.
