Iowa football recruiting: Hawkeyes earn commit from class of 2022

Iowa tabs a high school freshman!

NCAA Football: Outback Bowl-Mississippi State vs Iowa Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

So Kirk Ferentz earned a commitment from a freshman last night!

As of this writing, Aaron Graves projects as a defensive end. But a lot can happen in three years! Maybe he turns into a receiver, maybe he’s got a hand cannon and is Iowa’s QB of the future, nobody knows, because, again, this guy is 16. He plays for Southeast Valley High School in Gowrie.

He looks good on the tape, though!

Graves is yet ANOTHER success story Iowa had this past weekend at Kirk’s First Annual Crootin’ Extravaganza, as he earned an offer after attending the camp. Apparently, Iowa’s Reese Morgan and Levar Woods were onto him early, and after finally seeing him in person, the Hawkeyes offered, and he accepted.

It’s gonna be awhile until we see him on the field, but I’m looking forward to it!

Welcome aboard, Mr. Graves!

Let’s start thinking of cool nicknames for him like Gravesdigger and The Mortician or Country Gravesy.
