Iowa recruiting buzz: Chase Brackney commits to Hawkeyes, 3 others list Iowa as finalist
Transfer portal target Hunter Nourzad chooses Penn State over Iowa
IOWA CITY — The two weeks since National Signing Day had no shortage of recruiting activity for Iowa football, especially in the 2023 class.
The Gazette compiled the recruiting tidbits since then into one place:
Class of 2023 defensive end Chase Brackney committed to the Hawkeyes Monday night. Brackney received an offer from the Hawkeyes on Feb. 6.
Brackney goes to the same high school that Iowa quarterback Alex Padilla attended. Rivals and 247Sports do not have rankings for him, but he had no shortage of schools pursuing him. Brackney picked Iowa over USC, Nebraska, California and other Power Five programs.
Cornell (N.Y.) transfer Hunter Nourzad, a 6-foot-4 offensive lineman, picked Penn State over Iowa, Auburn, Illinois and Virginia Tech. The Hawkeyes are yet to receive a commitment through the transfer portal this year.
Offensive tackle Kadyn Proctor, a five-star recruit in the 2023 class and the top in-state prospect, included the Hawkeyes in his list of top seven schools. Proctor, from Southeast Polk, also is considering Michigan, Oregon, Alabama, Notre Dame, Georgia and Penn State.
Offensive guard Austin Siereveld, a four-star recruit in the 2023 class, listed the Hawkeyes among his top six schools. Michigan, Cincinnati, Notre Dame, Alabama and Ohio State also made the cut.
Wide receiver Kyler Kasper unveiled his top 10 schools, and Iowa made the cut. The son of former Hawkeye Kevin Kasper also listed Ohio State, Notre Dame, Georgia, Tennessee, USC, Oregon, Arizona State, Miami (Fla.) and UCLA.
Several 2023 prospects received offers from the Hawkeyes on Feb. 4, two days after National Signing Day — Tre Williams, Daniel Demery, Caden Jenkins and Cameren Jenkins.
Williams, an outside linebacker from Dallas, does not have a rating from 247Sports or Rivals yet. He does have offers, though, from Arizona State, Colorado, Nebraska, California and others.
Demery, a defensive back who attends the same high school as Williams, has a four-star evaluation from 247Sports’ composite rankings. His other suitors include Penn State, Texas A&M, Tennessee and Michigan State.
Caden and Cameren Jenkins — yes, they’re twins — hail from Lewisville, Texas. Neither cornerback has a rating yet from 247Sports although Caden is a three-star recruit according to Rivals.
Defensive lineman Brooks Bahr announced an offer from the Hawkeyes Feb. 6, the same day Iowa offered Brackney.
Rivals and 247Sports both have Bahr as a three-star prospect. Other offers for the Wilmette, Ill., athlete include Michigan, Iowa State, Cincinnati, Minnesota, Illinois and Northwestern.
Jyaire Hill and London Montgomery received offers from Iowa on Feb. 11.
Hill, a three-star athlete, already has offers from Washington, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Cincinnati, Penn State and a litany of other schools.
Montgomery is a three-star recruit per 247Sports, but he does not have a rating yet from Rivals. The 5-foot-11 running back from Scranton, Penn., also has offers from Michigan State, Rutgers and Syracuse, among others.
Mac Markway, a coveted four-star tight end in the 2023 class and the son of former Hawkeye Matt Markway, will visit the Hawkeyes on April 9. 247Sports’ composite rankings have Markway as the fifth-best tight end in the country.
