PLAYERS: Greg Garmon
TEAMS: Iowa Hawkeyes
The Iowa football program received a verbal commitment from Chicago (Simeon) Linebacker Reggie Spearmon on Tuesday night, just hours before the start of signing day which is always the first Wednesday in February. The 6-2/200 pound prospect is a three-star player on a five-star scale at both and  Spearmon originally gave his verbal commitment to Indiana and then to the University of Illinois on August 7th but decided to open things back up a month or so later.  He chose Iowa over Illinois and Syracuse, grabbing a Syracuse hat and then going with the Hawkeyes hat at his school’s press conference. Spearmon is the 20th commit in the Class of 2014, according to this database. Matthew Vandeberg is grey shirting, or at least that was the plan as of several weeks ago.  Ferentz said in the fall he expected this class to come in in the high teens.  However, he probably didn’t expect Greg Garmon to transfer at that point in time, which has opened up another ride. The post Hawkeyes Land Reggie Spearmon appeared first on Hawkeye Nation.

Hawkeyes Live & Die by the Two Star

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz never pays much attention to recruiting rankings. That's a trait that could serve him well this week. The Hawkeyes announced their latest class on Wednesday, a group that recruiting services have rated near the bottom of the Big Ten.

Hawkeyes Rewind: Another Close Road Loss

I think he has accurately summed up Iowa’s season and future. More on that in a bit. For the fourth straight road game, the...

Hawkeyes Hold Off PSU

Thank goodness Iowa’s opponent was Penn State. That’s what I kept thinking as I watched the Iowa-Penn State game play out on Thursday night. Have the Hawkeyes played more poorly at times this year? Yes. This week? Yes. Yet after the offensive grind that was Iowa at Purdue from Sunday, I was hoping for something a little more fluid from Iowa as it returned home after two...
