IT'S NOT PLAGIARISM IF YOU LINK TO IT: ONLY APRIL FOOLS WON'T READ THIS NEWS

Because I have no other titles.

HEY, WHILE WE HAVE FOOTBALL ON THE BRAIN. Iowa released this neat highlight video of last year's linebacker corps. No doubt a recruiting tool.

AND FOR WHAT PROSPECT WOULD IOWA USE THIS TOOL? How about Justian Hilliard, brother of 2014 commit C.J. Hilliard. Hilliard recently cut his list to 10 teams and Iowa made the cut.

He also spoke to Bleacher Report (I know but it's a video, something you can actually trust) about his interest in Iowa. Iowa sent him 300+ recruiting letters in one day, he says. Ohio State is going to be tough to beat for his services. A Buckeye friend of mine on Twitter said he's one of the best LB prospects to come from Ohio in some time. I trust that. He's a big target for the Hawks.

IOWA ADDS ANOTHER WALK-ON TO THE 2014 CLASS. And it's a position of need. Austin Kelly, a fullback from Palos Hills, Illinois, will join the squad next season. At 5'11" 240, that's a big boy.

IOWA ADDED TWO MORE RECRUITS TO THE 2015 CLASS. RossWB already covered that earlier this week with CIC. Here's some more on Dowling Catholic's Ryan Boyle from the Gazette. HawkMania also has more on Jack Hockaday.

MOVING ON. Hawkeye Sports has one of their "exclusive" interviews with a new face in the two-deeps, Sean Welsh. He's one of several new faces sprinkled across the Hawkeye offensive line two-deep. He'll start his career in a good spot, left guard sandwiched between possible all-American Brandon Scherff and potential all-Big Ten center Austin Blythe.

IOWA FOOTBALL HELD THEIR ANNUAL COACHES' CLINIC OVER THE WEEKEND. Kirk Ferentz was recognized.

FORMER PENN STATE COACH BILL O'BRIEN WAS IN TOWN AS A GUEST SPEAKER. O'Brien had glowing things to say to Hawkeye Sports about the Iowa Program. He may have also did some scouting.

BUT ENOUGH FOOTBALL, HOW ABOUT SOME SILLY BASKETBALL RUMORS. I don't think this has been floated here and good. It's "out there" to quote Luke Meredith. Out there enough that Aaron White felt the need to respond via Twitter.
