Iowa City High QB A.J. Derby commits to Iowa

The Gazette's Marc Morehouse has "multiple sources" saying Iowa City High senior QB A.J. Derby has verbally committed to the Iowa football program. The official announcement will be made at a Press Conference tomorrow. Derby chose the Hawkeyes over a number of different major programs that had extended offers to the highly-touted recruit. Florida, Nebraska, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Alabama are just a portion of the list of schools that had offered scholarships to the 6-foot-4, 225-pound quarterback.

Derby has led Iowa City High to 5-straight wins to start this season. The Little Hawks are currently ranked #1 in the Class 4A Iowa Football Poll.

Last year, Derby finished his junior season with 1,200 yards passing, 11 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also rushed for 1,065 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Update 4:39pm : A.J. Derby spoke with the Gazette's Scott Dochterman this afternoon. Press conference set for tomorrow.

Update 6:55pm : ESPN.com's Bill Hodge is reporting A.J. Derby is expected to choose Iowa and make that announcement tomorrow.

Update 7:06pm : Morehouse now has a story posted to his blog "On Iowa" citing his sources who say Derby is expected to commit to Iowa at a Press Conference tomorrow. Derby, nor his High School coach Dan Sabers, would confirm or deny the reports.

Update 9:05pm : HSN has learned that the presser is set for 4pm Friday where A.J. Derby will officially announce his college choice.
