What 4-star RB Jirehl Brock looks for on official visits; biggest lesson Reese Morgan learned from Georgia
Iowa football is always the main topic in the Iowa Breakfast Club, Land of 10’s daily Hawkeyes notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Hawkeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Iowa football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Four-star running back Jirehl Brock is down to four teams. He told HawkeyeNation.com’s Rob Howe what he is looking for during upcoming official visits. Iowa is his final visit on June 21-23. The Hawkeyes will need a strong final push to land Brock’s commitment.

Jahisha Thomas won the Big Ten indoor and outdoor triple and long jump titles, but those victories almost didn’t happen. Thomas thought a hamstring injury would wipe out her season in January. The Des Moines Register’s Mark Emmert wrote how Thomas fought back for a season to remember in his profile on Thomas.
