IOWA CITY — With offers going out to prospects in places as near as Williamsburg and as far as Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and visits planned for the final two weeks of spring practices, it’s been an eventful week for the Hawkeyes on the recruiting trail.
Here are the highlights of Iowa football’s recruiting activity since April 6:
Four days after receiving an offer from Iowa, three-star 2023 safety Nigel Glover committed to Northwestern. Rivals ranked Glover 39th among safeties in his class. Other suitors included Washington, West Virginia, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky.
Iowa is among the top nine schools for 2023 safety Daniel Demery, he announced on Twitter. Texas A&M, Michigan State, Texas, Nebraska, Purdue, Ole Miss, Colorado and SMU also made the cut.
The 5-foot-11 prospect from Dallas has a four-star rating from Rivals and three-star rating from 247Sports. Demery is the eighth-best 2023 safety in Rivals’ rankings.
Class of 2023 wide receiver Fredrick Moore unveiled his top 10 schools, and Iowa did not earn a spot. Four Big Ten schools — Indiana, Michigan State, Illinois and Rutgers — were in his top 10. The three-star prospect said in a tweet his recruitment still is “100 percent open” despite the narrowed list.
Derek Weisskopf, a 2024 athlete from Williamsburg, received an offer from the Hawkeyes Monday. The high school sophomore already has offers from Wisconsin and Nebraska. Iowa’s offer preempted Weisskopf’s Wednesday visit to Iowa State.
Weisskopf is the third-best 2024 prospect in Iowa, per 247Sports’ rankings. The two recruits ranked ahead of him — Cody Fox and Cam Buffington — already have committed to the Hawkeyes.
Michael Kilbane, a 6-4 edge rusher in the class of 2023 from St. Charles, Mo., received an offer from the Hawkeyes Tuesday.
Kilbane, who has a four-star rating from Rivals and three-star rating from 247Sports, also has offers from Penn State, Minnesota, Cincinnati, Kentucky, West Virginia and several other schools.
King Mack, a three-star 2023 safety from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., received an offer from the Hawkeyes on April 6. Other schools to offer Mack include Florida, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Nebraska and Ole Miss.
Beau Knobloch, a 2023 offensive lineman from Winterset, will visit Iowa City this weekend, he said in a tweet Wednesday morning.
Iowa State and Nebraska also have shown interest in the 6-4 tackle although they have not offered him a scholarship yet.
Class of 2023 defensive backs and twins Cameren Jenkins and Caden Jenkins will visit Iowa this weekend, according to a Rivals report. The Lewisville, Texas, prospects received offers from the Hawkeyes in February.
Offensive lineman Trevor Lauck and defensive lineman Kendrick Gilbert also are expected to visit Iowa this weekend, per 247Sports. Lauck has three-star ratings from 247Sports and Rivals. Gilbert has a three-star rating from 247Sports and four-star rating from Rivals.
The twins have three-star ratings from Rivals, but 247Sports has not given them a star rating.
Adepoju Adebawore and Edric Hill, both four-star defensive linemen from Kansas City, intends to visit Iowa on April 23, according to a 247Sports report, as well as three-star defensive lineman Messiah Blair.
Logan Howland, a 2023 offensive tackle who attends the same high school as committed quarterback Marco Lainez, plans to take an official visit to Iowa on June 24, per a Rivals report. Iowa offered Howland on April 1, and Indiana and Illinois have followed suit since then.
Iowa also will host three-star 2023 linebacker Asa Newsom for an official visit on June 24-26, 247Sports reported. The Waverly prospect has offers from Iowa, Minnesota, Mizzou, Kansas State and South Dakota.
