Wha'ppened?: A Decade of 4-Star Recruits


During the AJ Derby twitter meltdown Vint shared this stat which left me curious. Patrick mentioned that he was going to expand on his tweet later this week, so I'll keep this general just to foster discussion.

Although Patrick's numbers date back only to 2004, Rivals offered commitment lists for the last decade, and I thought I'd use all of the lists that were available, resulting in five more 4-star recruits for a total of thirty-one since 2002. Six of the twenty-six players mentioned by Patrick are still on the roster and enrolled at Iowa. Of the additional five players, only Chris Felder -- an OL whose back couldn't hold up to the rigors of football any longer -- left the Iowa football team before graduating.

The list of recruits can be found here. I included the current group of verbal commitments at the bottom of the spreadsheet (not pictured) for no other reason than to give us something to smile about after seeing the departures listed. Feel free to correct anything that I got wrong in the comments below.
