New Castle’s Geno Stone Declares Early for NFL Draft

New Castle’s Geno Stone Declares Early for NFL Draft

New Castle alum and Iowa defensive back Geno Stone has decided to enter the 2020 NFL Draft.

Stone, 6-foot, 195-pound cornerback, just finished his redshirt junior season with the Hawkeyes and will forgo his final season of collegiate eligibility.

“The past three years of my life have been filled with nothing but great memories and friendships that will last forever,” Stone said on Twitter in his announcement. “Since the bowl game, I have had plenty of time to think deeply about my future and weigh the pros and cons of my options. With that said, after serious discussion with my family, confidantes and coaches (and a lot of prayers), I have decided to declare for the 2020 NFL Draft.”

In 2019, Stone played in 13 games at strong safety for Iowa and made 70 tackles, three tackles for a loss, one sack, one interception, forced three fumbles and defended four passes. In his three-year playing career, he played in 32 games for the Hawkeyes.

Stone helped Iowa to a 10-3 record in 2019, including a win over USC in the 2019 Holiday Bowl.

Stone played high school football in Pitt’s back yard. He apparently was not good enough for Narduzzi.

Well if Pitt and Narduzzi screwed up so did everyone else because Iowa was Stone’s only Power 5 offer. He was originally committed to Kent State before Iowa offered late.
