Jarrod Uthoff is a different kind of kid. He's not different in the way he acts, when you spend time with him it feels natural- his personality and demeanor are that of your regular midwestern kid, and that is precisely what makes him so different. See, even though he acts the part of a regular Iowan teen- and I genuinely believe he's convinced that that's just what he is, his reality is a lot of things and normal isn't one of them. Over the course of the past 3 months this six foot eight soon-to-be senior has shot, passed, and dribbled his way into a pretty desirable position- it's safe to say that there are a lot of kids out there who wouldn't mind being in his shoes. It's been pretty clear for awhile now that Jerrod was going to be a division 1 basketball player, but it wasn't until recently that he realized his true potential. A few months ago word got out that there was a kid in Cedar Rapids who played like Gordon Hayward, and once word got out- it spread like wildfire. This unassuming midwestern kid is now one of the most sought after recruits in America- his combination of skills, size, and basketball IQ so unique that a quite impressive list of schools are putting on the full court press to try and get him to sign his name on that LOI- a list that includes Indiana, Illinois, Notre Dame, Butler, Arizona State, Wisconsin, Creighton, Iowa State, Iowa, and many more. So is he high on himself? A bit cocky at his newfound fame and success? You could spend a whole day with the kid and he probably wouldn't even mention any of that stuff- as a matter of fact, there's a good chance that if you brought it up he'd be quicker to change the subject than to gloat- and he might also forget to let you know that he's a 4.0 student and the president of his junior class. The future looks bright for Mr. Uthoff; a big time college basketball career seems a sure thing, and a shot at the NBA is certainly within reach if all goes as planned. But whether all those dreams materialize or not, one thing seems certain- Jerrod is going to be happy just being Jerrod- and that's what makes him so damn different..... DanielPoneman@gmail.com
