Signed and sealed: Iowa Hawkeyes
By ESPN.com staff
Iowa has made it official and announced its 22-man recruiting class for 2011.
The Hawkeyes' class features players from 12 different states, including four from Illinois, three from Maryland and three from within the state. Iowa is bringing in 12 offensive players and 10 on the defensive side.
Here's the position breakdown:
- Iowa didn't sign any ESPNU 150 prospects this year, but the Hawkeyes' class boasts several players just outside the 150 and good depth overall. Iowa signed three four-star players and 12 players who received grades of 78 or 79 from ESPN Recruiting.
- The Hawkeyes' pipeline to the Washington D.C. area was a big story line this year and it paid off with three players, including two DeMatha Catholic High School teammates (DT Darian Cooper and CB Jordan Lomax). They join former DeMatha star Marcus Coker at Iowa.
