Caring Is Creepy: Have a Seat Nick Wilson
Bring in West Des Moines Dowling's Nick Wilson. He had previously committed to Western Illinois but Iowa had remained in contact throughout this last month. Wilson's full ride came and he committed. He's commit #9 for Iowa from the state of Iowa. He also joins quarterback prospect Ryan Boyle as the second commit to this Hawkeye team from the 4A state champs.
COMPARABLE. We've mentioned Tyler Sash once already and Wilson is more developed as a high school athlete than Sash. Wilson can play a number of positions and may end up at free safety if he proves he has the foot speed. Derek Pagel played mostly special teams before starting all 13 games his senior year and eventually playing for the New York Jets. Patience is key with Iowa's lone consensus two-star commit.
