National Signing Day is just a couple weeks away for the Class of 2018, but while we’ve had a dearth of news on that front, there was some news impacting Iowa’s Class of 2019 on Sunday night, as 247’s Steve Wiltfong reported that Larry Tracy has de-committed from Iowa.
Indianapolis Decatur Central 2019 CB Larry Tracy has decommitted from Iowa: https://t.co/RdLDskO9Tq— Steve Wiltfong (@SWiltfong247) January 29, 2018
Tracy, who hails from Indianapolis, IN, is a three-star cornerback that became Iowa’s fourth commit in July, joining a couple four-star offensive linemen and a three-star tight end. He’s also the cousin of 2018 signee Tyrone Tracy, who appears set to play wide receiver for the Hawkeyes.
In an interview with Rivals ($), Tracy said of his decommitment:
Nothing against the Iowa coaching staff. It’s still 100% a great place and is still a top school in my recruitment. I have made great relationships with the Iowa staff. This decision is for me to have more time and to have a chance to look at all my opportunities.
Tracy’s de-commitment could be the gain of another Big Ten program - his stock has been rising lately and he holds offers from Indiana, Purdue, and Minnesota. Checking his Twitter, his last tweet is a retweet from Minnesota Head Coach PJ Fleck. There is, of course, the possibility he makes the decision to re-commit to Iowa - he’s still visiting for Iowa’s Junior Day in February.
Whatever his decision, we wish Mr. Tracy the best of luck in his recruitment process.
