Version 2.0 of the 2017 Iowa State Player Rankings sees expansion from a Top 12 to a Top 19 with seven new names. Each new name is designated with a hashtag.
Over the last nine recruiting cycles the Hawkeye State has averaged 10.9 FBS signees per year. Last year Iowa produced 12 DI prospects. Well get ready for this! There are already 17 2017 prospects verbally committed to FBS colleges.
This is definitely a banner year in recruiting for Iowa. Both Iowa and Iowa State have five in-state verbal commitments each.
The highest new entry at #5 is speedy wide out Oliver Martin of Iowa City West. Last year as a junior he recorded 72 tackles for 1,208 yards and 17 touchdowns. As of September 21, Martin has yet to make his final college destination known.
Coming in at #6 if two-way standout Levi Duwa of Mid-Prairie High School. Duwa most likely projects as a defensive end in college. The Golden Hawk has verbally committed to, of course, the Hawkeyes.
This is the final version of the Iowa State Player Rankings for the class of 2017.
