IOWA CITY, Iowa – The Iowa football team already is looking for its quarterback in the 2023 recruiting class.
The Hawkeyes extended a scholarship offer to Finkdale, Massachusetts, native Dante Reno on Friday.
“The Iowa offer means a lot to me,” Reno said. “(Quarterbacks) coach (Ken) O’Keefe really knows his stuff and they have built a great program there. He’s an even better person.”
The offer was the first full scholarship for the 6-foot-2, 215-pound Reno, and that’ll be in the back of his mind throughout the recruiting process.
“I haven’t really thought about my commitment decision yet,” Reno said. “But obviously my first offer will have a great impact on it.”
Reno also has scholarship offers from Georgia Tech and Massachusetts and said that Boston College and Purdue have also shown interest.
Reno said the Iowa coaching staff believes he can make all the throws necessary to succeed at the next level.
“I would describe my game as first being a leader,” Reno said. “Second a passer and third a runner when I need to. Winning always come first.”
