May looking at several options

A talented player on both the football field and basketball court, Dubuque Wahlert junior Eric May is receiving major college interest in both sports. This past weekend, the 6-foot-4, 200-pound May had the chance to drive down to Iowa City to watch the Hawkeyes work in spring practice.

As a dual-threat quarterback, May earned all-conference honors in leading Dubuque Wahlert to a 6-3 record this past season. The junior, who is also hearing from Iowa State and UNI on the gridiron, has the athleticism to possibly play a couple of different positions in college, including tight end.

While he is very impressive on the football field, May is probably known more for his basketball skills at this point, especially after hitting an unbelievable 35-foot buzzer beater to win the Class 3A state championship for Wahlert last month. Currently practicing with his AAU team, All Iowa Attack, the junior picked up a scholarship offer from UNI over the weekend to go along with an earlier one from Indiana State.

May, who averaged 18.2 points per game last season, recently received an invite to Iowa's elite basketball camp and is hearing from Iowa State, Creighton, Wichita State, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and a number of others as well. With a busy AAU schedule and invites to several camps, May hopes to sit down soon and look at his schedule this summer as he ultimately tries to decide which sport to play in college.

This weekend, May will be in Arkansas with Jake Sullivan's All Iowa Attack AAU team to play in the annual Real Deal on the Hill tournament.
