After narrowing his choices down to Iowa and Illinois recently, Class of 2015 quarterback Jack Beneventi made his college decision on Wednesday night. The 6-foot-6, 200-pound junior from Benet Academy in Lisle, IL, announced his verbal commitment to the Hawkeyes via Twitter, posting the following message.
One of only two Class of 2015 quarterbacks invited to the Rivals Five-Star Challenge at Soldier Field this past summer, Beneventi drew early scholarship offers from Iowa, Illinois, Notre Dame, and Louisville, among others. As a junior this year, he completed 134 of 246 pass attempts for 1,482 yards and seven touchdowns in leading Benet Academy to a 6-4 record.
Beneventi is the second commitment for the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Class of 2015, joining in-state offensive lineman Jacob Newborg.
