Boston College Football Recruiting: LeShun Daniels Decommits From BC, Verbals To Iowa

Boston College loses running back recruit Daniels to Iowa after visit this weekend.

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Boston College lost another recruit today as Warren Ohio's LeShun Daniels decommitted from Boston College. Daniels will be enrolling at Iowa in the fall.

According to the running back, there appeared to be three reasons for his choice. One was the firing of Frank Spaziani, the second being the transfer of Iowa's leading rusher Greg Garmon, and the clincher was his visit to Iowa last weekend.

"I just feel like it's the right place for me," the 6-foot, 215-pound Daniels said. "I loved it when I was up there (last weekend). Everything was a good fit. It was a tough decision to make, but I slept on it, thought about it long and hard this week and just came to the conclusion that Iowa is the right place for me."

This news comes just days after BC lost kicker Michael Geiger to Michigan State. Boston College still has one running back, Myles Willis, committed to the Eagles. However it should be noted that Willis met with Penn State over the weekend himself. Also on the radar for the Eagles are running backs Fred Coppet and Robert Davis, who right now hold offers from Boston College.
