New, 6 comments

Three-star tight end from Omaha, Nebraska.

Caring is creepy: Have a seat Noah Fant

COMPARISON: If you're looking for a comparison for recruiting drama, Noah Fant's closes comp is a Real Housewife.  But as a football player, Fant reminds me of former Hawkeye Brandon Myers.  Fant is taller at 6'5", but both were terrific high school athletes. Myers moved beyond Iowa to the NFL and still is in the league moving from Oakland to the New York Giants to Tampa Bay. If Fant can prove he can block, he may see the field as early as 2017 after George Kittle moves on to the NFL.
