Hawkeye Nation, welcome T.J. Hockenson to the #Hawkeyes | #IowaNSD16 https://t.co/hnoT0gqEpD— Hawkeye Football (@HawkeyeFootball) February 3, 2016
Hometown: Chariton, Iowa
247 Sports Composite Rating: 3-star, 65th nationally
Other Offers: Iowa State, Eastern Michigan
Caring is Creepy: Have a Seat, TJ Hockenson
COMPARISON: Hockenson is an interesting prospect, as he's an Iowa high school record breaker as a receiver. He's still thin, but he will likely grow into his 6'5" frame. Jake Duzey was primarily a receiver in college but not as tall as Hockenson. He's more similar to last year's commit Nate Vejvoda in stature, another 6'5" receiving tight end that will add weight and will likely learn to block on the scout team a couple years before making an appearance on the field.
