Iowa’s recruiting class took a major hit after prized running back recruit Eno Benjamin from Wylie, Texas, decommitted from the Class of 2017 last week.
On Wednesday morning, five-star defensive end recruit A.J. Epenesa affirmed his commitment to Iowa in a tweet that may have appeared to be a slight at those less “loyal.”

Epenesa, an Edwardsville, Ill., native, has been committed to Iowa since January. He’s the No. 2 DE recruit in the country according to Scout, and the No. 21 overall recruit. He’s received offers from eight other Big Ten schools.
