Man among boys
Class of 2019 Iowa offensive tackle commit Ezra Miller went to San Francisco for a The Opening regional camp, run by Nike. All he did there was take home offensive line MVP honors. Rivals’ Blair Sanderson recaps the event here.
Nothing to see here
One of Iowa’s top 2019 recruiting targets, 4-star wide receiver David Bell, never made it to junior day on Sunday. He was involved in a car accident. Bell is fine and will reschedule his Iowa visit, Sanderson reports. Bell’s absence is nothing more than bad luck for the Hawkeyes in this recruitment.
Iowa is jumping back into the Texas recruiting waters in a major way. Land of 10 wrote about the two questions the Hawkeyes must answer to start landing more Texas prospects.
I’m a playmaker
It’s a phrase Josh Jackson is repeating in his lead up to the NFL draft. He said it to reporters at the NFL combine and is out to prove he will make plays at the next level just as he did in college.
Comfortable in the interview room
Josey Jewell ran a 4.82 and 4.83 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL combine. It was probably the only time he didn’t impress NFL scouts — they wanted to see a lower time — at the NFL combine. Land of 10 takes a look at Jewell and why his personality plays well with pro teams.
Next man up
Five Iowa players were at the NFL combine. The Cedar Rapids Gazette’s Marc Morehouse asked the Hawkeyes who will replace them and the other seniors. Running back Akrum Wadley continues to hype up Ivory Kelly-Martin and Toren Young as his replacements.
Down for the count
The Big Ten championships were bad for the Iowa wrestling team. The team finished fourth and there were no individual champions. The Des Moines Register’s Cody Goodwin breaks down where the Hawkeyes go from here.
The Iowa softball team upset No. 8 Baylor 3-1 on Sunday. Outfielder MaKenzie Schneider was the hero, hitting a two-run home run in the seventh inning to lift the Hawkeyes to the victory.
Put the brooms away
The Iowa baseball team won the first two games against UAB over the weekend, but fell 4-0 on Sunday. The Hawekeyes couldn’t solve UAB pitcher Ryan Wesson, who threw 5⅔ scoreless innings.
