Throughout the month of July Yankton (S.D.) High School power forward Colton Iverson gathered up high-major offers. Then after his play in Las Vegas, Iverson, 6-foot-9, 240-pounds, picked up an offer from the reigning two time national champions Florida. This past weekend Iverson took a trip down south.
"I started off visiting Creighton on Wednesday and was down there until Friday," said Iverson. "It was a good visit. I hung out with the players and coaches and was able to see the facilities. I had heard that the arena was really nice, and it definitely lived up to my expectations.
"I went down to Florida on Friday and was with the coaches and players till Sunday. I went out with the guys and had a good time and felt very comfortable. The team is really a bunch of nice, good guys."
With Florida being much farther away from Yankton, S.D., than the other schools on Iverson's list, the comfort factor on the trip enhances the Gators' chances of landing Iverson.
"Getting to Florida is definitely a trip compared to the other schools, but it is not a concern," said Iverson. "I can feel comfortable at Florida as much as the other schools."
Besides Florida and Creighton, Iowa, Iowa State, Minnesota and Nebraska make up the rest of Iverson's school list. Next weekend Iverson travels to Iowa State and then Minnesota and Nebraska on the following weekends. Since he will have used all five of his official visits, Iverson said he might unofficially visit Iowa later in September.
Reluctant to name a leader at this stage in the process, Iverson, the No. 140 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, does plan to decide on a school by the fall signing period.
