Caring Is Creepy: Have a Seat, Tyler Wiegers

He's a big, rangy pocket passer with the ability to throw the deep ball and enough elusiveness to scramble when everything breaks down. He is, essentially, every quarterback Iowa has recruited in the last decade that remained a quarterback. He can throw out of play action, roll out, or stand tall in the pocket and hit a receiver down the sideline. All that tape needs is more cowbell.

Wiegers committed to Iowa after previously pledging his support to Rutgers.  After decommitting from the Scarlet Knights, his eventual decision to join the Hawkeyes looked assured; the only remaining suitors were an Ivy League team and a handful of MAC programs.  After a visit to Penn and a brief dalliance with Michigan State, he was in the fold.

Wiegers is the only quarterback in Iowa's 2014 class, a group that was not supposed to get one.  It helps when a borderline four-star recruit falls in your lap, but Wiegers did throw off the numbers slightly, hence the interesting math by the coaching staff late in the recruiting cycle.  He's in, though, and he looks pretty good.
