    Coach JC has quietly put together one of his best recruiting classes of his entire TF career this season at Iowa. So far, all 9 commits are ESPNU 150 recruits.

    1. :4stars: Mike Herring C(#3) 5'11 294 Ibs Nevada, Iowa Mike will be an excellent all around blocker (B- in pass and run blocking with B- Strength.
    2. :4stars: Troy King WR(#5) 6'0 164 Ibs Menominee Falls, WI Troy embodies the type of WR Iowa loves. A guy with great hands and the ability to make the clutch reception.
    3. :4stars: Jon West DE(#17) 6'2 229 Ibs Ronkonkoma, NY Jon could be one of the nations top pass rushers even as a freshman. He possesses excellent moves (B+ finesse and B power moves as well as B block shedding) and has the ability to chase down the ball carrier (B pursuit).
    4. :4stars: Clint Freeman ATH(#4) 6'0 193 Ibs Garden City, NY Clint projects as a 2-way player at safety and WR. He has great speed (B+) and good hands (C catching) but lacks the coverage skills of a good CB. He does, however, tackle extremely well (B+) and hits like a truck (B hit power).
    5. :4stars: Marcus Wilkerson G(#12) 6'3 288 Ibs Wausau, WI Marcus has good strength (B-) and decent all around blocking skills but will need a redshirt year to grow into his frame and improve his technique.
    6. :4stars: Josh Smith DT(#5) 6'4 271 Ibs Hillview, KY Josh is a DE in a DT body. He has great pass rush skills and can really get after the ball carrier and stuff the run.
    7. :4stars: Terrell Marshall MLB(#7) 5'11 219 Ibs Mesquitte, TX Marshall is a run stuffer to the extreme. He has good speed for a linebacker (B) and great pursuit and hit power (B+ for both). He may need a redshirt year to work on his coverage skills.
    8. :4stars: Justin Huffman QB(#4) 6'4 235 Ibs Mission Hills, KS Justin needs to hone his passing skills slightly, but he's going to be a good future QB for Iowa. He has size and good speed (B) and elusiveness (B). He's a smart kid (C awareness) but needs to work on his accuracy (C). Justin will most likely redshirt.
    9. :4stars: Jermaine Young SS(#4) 6'7 206 Ibs Sapulpa, OK Jermaine is probably the most intriguing recruit for this years class. He doesn't have top end speed (C+) but moves quickly (B+ Acceleration). He has good hands for a defensive player (C+ catching) and with his massive he can hit the snot out of people (B+ hit power and pursuit). He is also excellent in zone coverage (B+) and decent in man (C+).
