DES MOINES — Christian French isn’t going to rush.
His number of football offers rising constantly, French said Friday that “I just want to take my time” in making a decision.
“I’m going to investigate each school so I make the right decision,” he said. “I am not going to be rushed.”
Among French’s offers: Iowa State, Iowa, Missouri, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Louisville and Kansas State.
French said that Notre Dame wants him to play outside linebacker; the other have him tabbed as a receiver or tight end.
The junior from Cedar Rapids Kennedy advanced to the finals of the Drake Relays 100-meter dash Friday. He pulled up midway through the race and jogged to the finish line.
“I felt something pull, so I decided to slow it down,” he said. “I’m hoping it’s just a bad cramp.”
French entered the finals with the third-best preliminary effort.
