One of the earliest commitments in Iowa's 2006 recruiting class was Omaha Millard North athlete Jeff Tarpinian. As a senior, the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Tarpinian rushed for 2,082 yards, as he led Millard North to a Nebraska Class A state championship.

Tarpinian talks about starting his college career, which position he will play, and much more in this premium update.
