Iannotti was selected to a group of 868 players from 275 schools from all divisions of football.

To qualify, a player must start or be a significant contributor in his last year of eligibility at a university ranging from the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision to a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics college or university.


A player must achieve a 3.2 cumulative grade point average throughout his entire course of undergraduate study and meet all requirements to obtain a degree.

Iannotti graduated from SIU with a degree in marketing and achieved a 3.824 GPA while leading the nation in total offense for 2015.
