With recruits committing more frequently I thought I would get us a thread so everyone could announce who they just landed. Maybe post a youtube video on the kid committing to your school. Talk a lil smack to a rival fan who got one guy your school was also trying to get.
Iowa has landed 3 recruits so far. (all ratings are from Rivals)
1. 4 star DE David Kenney

Not the best video but all i could find.
Iowa now has 5 commits and we are not even through April. Usually Iowa has 1 maybe 2 its been a fast start for the hawks.
Huskers land 3 star (No.30) Outside Linebacker Courtney Love from Ohio.
2 more recruits for Iowa.
3 Star OLB John Kenny, Indiana

3 Star DT Brant Gressel Ohio
[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ajc7mKxAncw]2013 Brant Gressel - Centerville - DL72 - Jr yr - PROMO - YouTube[/ame]
Short cause no membership, kid looks like Mitch King
Another big in state commitment.
3-star DT Merrick Jackson. 6'2" 320
No YouTube highlights, but he's gonna continue the new tradition of stud Illini D-linemen.
Offers from Indiana, Iowa and Mizzou.
Next commit could be another stud in-state D-lineman Josh Augusta.
Aaron Bailey really got the ball rolling. 4-Star receiver Laquon Treadwell tweeted yesterday "Bailey to Treadwell for the touchdown". Things look bright.
Iowa Lands Texas QB Nic Shimonek. No rating on rivals or youtube video i could find.
His stats were impressive so hopefully he turns out. Iowa was first major school to offer and he committed this afternoon.
Just under 3,000 yards, 38 TD's and 3 INT's.
Iowa lands 3 Star S Malik Rucker Minn.

He reminds me of Bob Sanders BIG hitter, looks like he has a pretty solid game. One thing is he is going to have to learn to form tackle and not always go for the big hit.
I have been slacking on the Iowa recruiting front cause Iowa has been very busy so here is the list of guys who have committed since i last posted.
Derrick Mitchell Jr, 3-star ATH St Louis Mizz
Sean Welsh, 3 star OL Ohio
Andre Harris, 2 star WR Kirkwood Mizz
Trevon Young 2 star OLB Des Moines Ia
Soloman Warfield 3 star DB Lakewood Ohio
Ike Boettger 2 star TE Cedar Falls Ia
John Wisnieski 3 star TE West Des Moines Ia
Not a lot of stars with theses guys but all look like they have potential. Like a lot of Iowa's classes not many Highly regarded recruits but they usually do well on the field we will see how the rest of the class pans out as of now only 3 scholly's left.
After reports were out that 5-Star WR LaQuon Treadwell was leaning towards Michigan, he received a offer from Florida.
Laquon Treadwell visiting Illinois this weekend.
