Weisman originally hails from Lincolnshire, Illinois. He played his high school football at Aldai Stevenson, the same school my wife attended. I have a brother-in-law that coaches in the area and he had this to say about Weisman:
"Weisman is a powerback from Stevenson. He runs a 4.6ish 40 yard dash. He's strong, really strong. Probably benches 350, squats 500+. "According to Rivals, Weisman was a two star recruit in 2010 and despite not showing a lot of offers received interest from Iowa, Michigan State, Central Michigan, and Miami, Oh.
"He is a good ball carrier, doesn't fumble, and hits the hole hard and with his eyes open."
Scout.com also listed Weisman as a two star recruit and ESPN says he is "tough and hard nosed."
A little bit more from his Air Force bio:
“Let’s put it this way,” said former Stevenson High coach Bill Mitz, who retired after the 2009 season, “he started for me for three years and never fumbled the football – not one fumble in a game. And during those years he rushed for about 4,000 yards.”Iowa typically doesn't recruit the fullback position, players just seem to find their way there. It is definitely a position of need and an athlete like Weisman will only be a boost to the roster.
