Paine sets visit to Iowa

Future Hawkeye DeMarco Paine has not been to Iowa City since he attended Iowa's camp in June where he earned a scholarship offer and committed shortly thereafter. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Paine, who attends Hazelwood East in the St. Louis area, will have the chance to get another look at campus this weekend when he makes his official visit.

Paine, who ran a 4.44 forty at a combine last spring, moved to tailback in his senior season and averaged 7.6 yards per carry in racking up 738 yards and 13 touchdowns this year. He also had two interceptions in spot duty at cornerback, which is where Iowa projects him at for next year.

Rivals.com ranks Paine as the No. 64 athlete in the nation and the No. 8 prospect in the state of Missouri this year.
