McNamara DB Nico Law picks Iowa

By Josh Barr

Talk about your interesting weekends. After making 14 tackles in McNamara's 14-12 loss to Paul VI Catholic this past Friday, Nico Law, his parents and his younger brother departed Fairfax and drove to Iowa City, Iowa, for an official visit to the University of Iowa.

While Law previously had visited many of the 20-some schools that had offered him a college football scholarship, he had never been to Iowa. It was his first official visit and he did not have lofty expectations as his family set out on a 15-hour, 900-mile (each way) odyssey.

"I had a very negative perception of it before going out there," he said. "I thought it was going to be out in the cornfields. I was scared to go out there and what I was going to see. I thought I might cancel out the school before meeting the coaches. But it wasn't as bad as I thought it was. It was very cold [but] people were walking around in shorts and it was freezing. I guess they're accustomed to it."

Law attended Iowa's 37-6 thrashing of previously undefeated Michigan State. Soon, he was swayed to become a Hawkeye. During the drive home Monday, somewhere in Indiana, Law phoned Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz to say he had made his choice. Law was unsure if he will take his other planned official visits to Maryland, West Virginia, Cincinnati and Louisville.

"I felt like the school was the complete package," Law said. "There was no need to visit any other. I had visited almost every [other] school that offered me unofficially. I felt this school was a complete fit."
