Height: 6’4”
Weight: 225
Stars: 247 Sports - 3 Rivals - 3

After Josiah Miamen’s first week as a Hawkeye commit, he was sidelined with what’s considered to be a minor injury, missing Dunlap’s matchup with East Peoria. That didn’t stop Dunlap from getting the win 28-16.

Miamen is expected back as Dunlap (4-1) hosts Limestone this week.

Jack Campbell, LB

Hometown: Cedar Falls, IA (Cedar Falls)
Height: 6’4”
Weight: 210
Stars: 247 Sports - 3 Rivals - 3

After a tremendous performance a week, ago, Jack Campbell outdid himself this week. He logged 15 tackles for the second consecutive week. This week, he also added a sack and returned a blocked punt for a touchdown as Cedar Falls cruised to a 38-7 victory over Cedar Rapids Jefferson.

On the season, Campbell now has 75 tackles , 4.5 TFL and 3 sacks through 6 games. Those impressive numbers are why Campbell is looking for votes to make the Under Armour All-America Game.

Jestin Jacobs, LB

Hometown: Clayton, OH (Northmont)
Height: 6’4”
Weight: 205
Stars: 247 Sports - 3 Rivals - 3

Fellow linebacker commit Jestin Jacobs is also looking for votes to make the Under Armour All-America Game.

That ask comes after another game where Jacobs wasn’t needed in a big way as Northmont rolled to a 49-7 victory over Lebanon. Jacobs did add a pair of tackles in the win.

In four games this season, Jacobs now has 15 tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery.

The win moves Northmont to 5-1 on the season. They’ll will host Springfield this week.

Sebastian Castro, S

Hometown: Oak Lawn, IL (Richards)
Height: 6’1”
Weight: 198
Stars: 247 Sports - 3 Rivals - 3

Safety commit Sebastian Castro had perhaps his most disappointing performance of the season from a statistical standpoint. That had little to do with his actual output and more to do with the fact that Richards blasted Argo 50-0. Castro, in limited minutes, had 3 tackles and a pass break up.

Here’s a look at the highlights.

It’s always interesting watching his highlights as he appears to be shot out of a cannon on every play.

On the season Castro now has 26 tackles, including 3 tackles for loss, as well as 2 interceptions and 3 forced fumbles. On offense, he’s up to nearly 300 yards rushing with 5 touchdowns.

Richards (6-0) will host Lemont this week.

Dane Belton, CB/S

Hometown: Tampa, FL (Jesuit)
Height: 6’1”
Weight: 185
Stars: 247 Sports - 3 Rivals - 3

Fellow defensive back commit Dane Belton had a similar night to Castro. He also totaled 3 tackles as Jesuit rolled to a 59-0 victory over Spoto Friday.

Here’s a look at the highlights.

Belton now has 18 tackles and an interception through five games this season. Jesuit (5-0) will host Osceola this week.

Jake Karchinski, DE

Hometown: De Pere, WI (West De Pere)
Height: 6’5”
Weight: 245
Stars: 247 Sports - 3 Rivals - 3

Defensive end commit Jake Karchinski finished with 3 tackles as West De Pere came away with another relatively painless win. They defeated Menasha 35-7 on Friday.

On the season Karchinski now has 29 tackles, 8 TFL and 4.5 sacks and a fumble recovery. West De Pere (7-0) will be at Waupaca this week.

Jalen Hunt, DE

Hometown: Belleville, MI (Belleville)
Height: 6’2”
Weight: 250
Stars: 247 Sports - 3 Rivals - 3

Finally, Jalen Hunt and Belleville kept their season perfect with a 29-26 squeaker over Dearborn Fordson this week. As we’ve seen all season, there are no stats available for Hunt.

Belleville (6-0) will be at Stevenson this week.

Lineman Notes

Offensive line commit Justin Britt remains sidelined with his torn ACL. Warren Central and top WR target David Bell continued to put on an offensive show in his absence. They moved to 7-0 on the year with an incredible 72-25 win over Lawrence North. Kirk Ferentz and WR coach Kelton Copeland were on hand to watch Bell haul in 12 catches for 284 yards and 4 touchdowns, as well as throwing a 56-yard touchdown pass. He remains the top target on the Iowa recruiting board.

Warren Central will host Carmel this Friday.

Lineman commit Noah Fenske and New Hampton turned a win a week ago into a streak as they defeated Iowa Falls-Alden 28-7. Fenske had 5 tackles on defense in the effort. New Hampton (2-4) will host Crestwood this week.

Elsewhere, offensive lineman Ezra Miller and Ridge View had another disappointing week. They suffered their 6th straight loss, falling to Alta-Aurelia 38-12. Ridge View (0-6) will host Fort Dodge St. Edmond this week.

And finally, lineman Tyler Endres and Norwalk got another win. This time it was a 36-3 victory over North Polk. Now 3-3, Norwalk will head to Bondurant-Farrar this week.

That’s it for week 6/7. We’ll be back next week and every week from here on out to update you on all the commit performances. Go Hawks.
