Iowa received a commitment from punter Ryan Gersonde last night during the Rutgers vs. Iowa basketball game, and he’s officially signed on to be a member of #Swarm17 this morning!
Gersonde grew up in Australia, so while he punts traditionally sometimes, he also learned how to rugby punt pretty well in his time down under. There’s a lot to like from his highlight video, where he booms punts 50+ yards with apparent ease - at one point, he punts the ball 50 yards while pinned to the back of his end zone. That’s talent.
Here’s the quick bio on Ryan Gersonde:
High School/Hometown: Marquette University High School // Milwaukee, WI
Measurables: 6’4”, 180 lb.
