After committing to University of Iowa last April, 6-foot-5, 280-pound Colin Goebel signed a letter-of-intent with the Hawkeyes football team Wednesday during National Signing Day in Austin, Texas, Hawkeyesports.com reports.
Goebel, a Naperville North senior and Lisle resident, played for four years as an offensive guard for the Huskies, who finished the 2012-13 season with a 5-5 record. He signed on Wednesday to play as a Hawkeye offensive lineman for the 2013-14 season.
Hawkeyes offensive line coach Brian Ferentz took to Twitter Wednesday to share the news.
"Welcome to Colin Goebel and his family! A future #BullyOfTheB1G!," Ferentz tweeted.
Goebel also expressed plenty of excitement when he sent out a tweet Wednesday.
"Been a long four years playing football at NNHS, but now I'm ready to take my work to Iowa. Hawkeyes Let's Go!!!," he tweeted.
Goebel was named DuPage Valley Conference’s Offensive Lineman of the Year in 2011. He also earned prep All-America honors and was selected to compete for Team USA in the International Bowl, according to Hawkeyesports.com.
