SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Highly touted City High senior quarterback A.J. Derby will announce which college team he plans to play for today during a press conference at City High School at 4 p.m.

Derby, a four-star recruit according to Rivals.com, has garnered significant interest from Iowa and other schools, including Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Miami (Fla.), and Michigan.

Derby, a 6-4 218-pound athlete, is coming off a statistically impressive junior season. Throwing for 1,197 yards on 136 attempts with 11 touchdown passes, the multifaceted quarterback also rushed for 1,064 yards and 13 touchdowns last year.

With Derby under center for the Little Hawks, City High is the top-ranked team in the state in Class 4A.

Derby will be the fourth football player to make the cross-town trip from City High to the Hawkeyes if he commits to Iowa.
