IOWA CITY — The NCAA has a recruiting “quiet period” in place for FBS teams this month — it prohibits off-campus contact with recruits — but "quiet“ might not be the best word to use to describe Iowa’s recruiting lately.
Here’s a roundup of Iowa football’s recruiting activity since March 10:
Trevor Lauck, an offensive tackle in the 2023 recruiting class, included the Hawkeyes in his top eight schools. Iowa joined Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Cincinnati, Louisville, Purdue and Indiana on the list.
Rivals ranks the Indianapolis prospect 50th among offensive tackles and seventh among prospects from the Hoosier State. Lauck is the 38th-best offensive tackle and sixth-best Indiana prospect in 247Sports’ composite rankings.
Brooks Bahr, who received an offer from Iowa on Feb. 6, committed to Michigan on Tuesday afternoon. The 6-foot-6 defensive end from the Chicago suburbs is the 68th-best defensive lineman in 247Sports’ composite rankings.
Malachi Coleman, a four-star athlete from Lincoln, Neb., received an offer from Iowa Monday. Coleman’s other offers include Nebraska, Texas Tech, Maryland and Minnesota. Both Rivals and 247Sports are predicting he commits to his hometown Huskers.
Trevor Buhr, a three-star defensive tackle from Washington, Mo., picked up an offer from the Hawkeyes on March 11. His other offers include Iowa State, Kentucky, Kansas and Wyoming.
Jamison Patton, a three-star athlete from Des Moines Roosevelt, will take an official visit to the Hawkeyes from June 24-26.
Patton received an offer from Iowa on Nov. 4. His other suitors include UCLA, Iowa State, Washington, Missouri and Nebraska.
Patton won’t be the only recruit there. Maddux Borcherding-Johnson, Leighton Jones and Alex Mota, all of whom already committed to the Hawkeyes, also announced official visits for that weekend.
Zach Ortwerth will take an unofficial visit to the Hawkeyes on March 26 in what will be his fifth visit in a 12-day period. The 2023 tight end from St. Louis received an offer from Iowa on Jan. 28 and also visited Iowa City on Jan. 23.
Recruiting class rankings
Iowa’s 2023 class is ranked 10th nationally in 247Sports’ composite rankings and 12th nationally in Rivals’ rankings.
