John Allen was told twice last week Iowa was on the verge of offering his son Brian a football scholarship.
John Allen didn't believe it either time. Brian Allen was after all only a high school freshman and had never played varsity football.
But on Monday, John Allen called Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz as he was advised, and Ferentz confirmed that he would like to extend a scholarship offer to Brian Allen.
"We're all kind of amazed by it," John Allen said. "I don't think it's sunk in yet. He's 15 years old. He can't drive a car yet, etc."
