Paine makes official visit

Future Hawkeye DeMarco Paine was in Iowa City for his official visit this weekend. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Paine, who verbally committed to Iowa back in June, enjoyed the chance to see more of his future school.

Paine's host on the official visit was redshirt freshman Adrian Clayborn, who is also from the St. Louis area. On the visit, the three-star prospect had a chance to sit down with the Iowa coaching staff and talk about where they see him fitting in next year, which is at cornerback.

As a senior, Paine used his 4.4 speed primarily at running back, averaging 7.6 yards per carry in racking up 738 yards and 13 touchdowns for Hazelwood East.

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