After Iowa capped off a busy weekend of official visits, already-committed offensive lineman Leighton Jones had a message for Hawkeye fans on Twitter: “Stay tuned this week.”
Some of the recruiting dominoes that fall following such a consequential weekend have fallen.
Others, like five-star prospect Kadyn Proctor’s decision between Iowa and Alabama, have yet to fall, but still could later this week.
Here are the commitments, narrowed lists, offers, class rankings and other Iowa football recruiting notes from the last seven days:
Committed to Iowa
Four-star offensive lineman Trevor Lauck wasted little time in committing to the Hawkeyes after his official visit. Lauck, the third 2023 offensive lineman to commit to Iowa, also had offers from Ohio State, Tennessee, Michigan, Cincinnati and others.
Class of 2023 offensive lineman Christopher Terek chose Wisconsin over Iowa on Wednesday. Terek, a three-star prospect, chose Iowa’s Big Ten rival the week after taking an official visit to Iowa City.
Jaron Tibbs, a three-star wide receiver from Indianapolis, committed to Purdue over Iowa on Tuesday. The 2023 wideout’s decision came days after taking an official visit to Iowa. The Hawkeyes have one wide receiver committed for 2023 so far.
Class of 2023 three-star defensive lineman Will Heldt also chose Purdue over Iowa. The Carmel, Ind., prospect took an official visit to Iowa earlier this month. The Hawkeyes already have three defensive linemen committed in the 2023 class.
Walk-on committed to Iowa
Class of 2022 punter Max Hoskins committed to the Hawkeyes as a preferred walk-on, he announced in a tweet Tuesday. The Salem, Ore., prospect will be one of three punters on Iowa’s 2022 roster, joining Tory Taylor and Nick Phelps.
Kendrick Gilbert, a four-star 2023 defensive end, included the Hawkeyes in his final four schools along with LSU, Purdue and Kentucky. The Indianapolis prospect was among the many Iowa targets to be in town for official visits last weekend.
Carter Nelson, a 2024 tight end from Ainsworth, Neb., announced an offer from the Hawkeyes on June 24. Rivals gave Nelson a three-star rating and ranked him second in his state for the 2024 class.
Nelson’s other offers include Nebraska, Iowa State, Kansas State, Virginia Tech and Kansas.
Preferred walk-on offers
Iowa offered preferred walk-on spots to a trio of 2023 targets — Bryce Anderson, Tommy Poholsky and Ayden Price.
Anderson, a 6-foot-5 tight end from West Des Moines Valley High School, has a scholarship offer from Northern Iowa.
Poholsky, a quarterback from the Denver area, is the son of former Iowa quarterback Tom Poholsky, who died suddenly last year at the age of 54.
Price, a 2023 athlete at West Des Moines Valley, has offers from Army and Air Force.
