    In state recruiting for 2015 class

    So looking at the crop of talent in state for the 2015 class, 3 of the top 4 rated in-state recruits (via Rivals) are offensive lineman.

    1) ATH Drew Cook, 6'4'', 205 lbs Iowa City - Regina (ESPN top 300 4 star, grade=80, Rivals 5.4 two start) IOWA COMMIT
    2) OL OL Bryce Meeker, 6'4'', 289 lbs Cedar Rapids - Prairie High School (ESPN 3 star, Rivals 5.6 rated 3 star) NO OFFER
    3) OL Landan Paulsen, 6'6'', 267 lbs Moville - Woodbury Central (ESPN 3 star, grade = 75, Rivals 5.6 rated 3 star) IOWA COMMIT
    4) OL Levi Paulsen, 6'6'', 250 lbs Moville - Woodbury Central (ESPN 3 star, grade = 76, Rivals 5.6 rated 3 star) IOWA COMMIT
    5) OL Jacob Newborg, 6'2'', 271 lbs, Inwood - West Lyon (ESPN 3 star, Rivals 5.4 rated 3 star) IOWA COMMIT
    6) QB Ryan Boyle, 6'1'', 205 lbs, DM - Dowling (ESPN 3 star grade = 75, Rivals 5.4 rated 2 star) IOWA COMMIT
    7) RB Devon Paye, 6'0'', 215 lbs, Western CC (5.5 rated 3 star) NO OFFER
    8) ATH Seth Nerness , 6'4'', 225lbs Murray (Rivals 5.4 rated 2 star) ISU OFFER



    Would love to land Meeker and the Paulsen twins. Corn-fed midwest kids that can anchor a line. Not sure how good Broyle is....anybody seen him play in person?

    EDIT: Updated 3/27/14. The Paulsen twins, Newborg and Boyle have committed to Iowa. Meeker doesn't have an Iowa State offer yet. Don't know much about Paye yet.

    EDIT: Updated 4/22/14. Looks like the only in-state kid with an ISU offer is Nerness. Wonder if we jump in on Meeker and Paye later on. The rest are Iowa bound.

    The Paulsens are most likely goin to Iowa. And it appears Meeker has is an Iowa lean as well.

    Re: In state recruiting for 2015 class

    I have heard the Paulsen's are Hawk fans. I thought Boyle looked outstanding in the state championship game against a pretty good defense. His passing looked much more polished than Lanning's did the year before.

    Re: In state recruiting for 2015 class

    I know its an age old argument and every side has their valid reasons I'd like to see ISU ramp up their pursuit of Iowa kids , not saying we don't land our share or in the last 2 yrs the best in the state...but IMO most kids r Iowa first then ISU , I want that stigma/mindset to cchange... hope my pt was made without opening another argument

    Re: In state recruiting for 2015 class

    Paulsens, Newborg, and Meeker are all likely to be Hawks. Boyle had an interview the other day and it sounds like hes waiting for the Iowa offer, didnt get the vibe if he was a lean however.

    Iowa already has a 4-star QB in next year's class, so not sure Boyle headed there. Not sure how he is going to project. Do know the family well and know that his first love is Georgia-family lived in Atlanta area when he was growing up. Again, no idea if he is SEC material or not. He is an incredible talent.

    Doubt it. Paulsens and Newborg appear to be going to the same school, everyone is just waiting for the commit.

    Spot on. He doesnt know if they want a 2 QB class. If he was willing to play somewhere else they'd look, but I dont see him being a hawkeye otherwise.

    Re: In state recruiting for 2015 class

    One thing I did notice though, didn't see any of these kids with an ISU offer yet. Not sure if thats accurate of Rivals is just behind on their actual offers.

    That class is terrible. High schools in Texas have more D1 prospects than the entire state of Iowa.

    The only Iowa kid with an offer is Seth Nerness:

    I don't think anyone is going to lose any sleep if Iowa cleans up the rest of them.

    I know first-hand that Paulsen boys would be very interested in ISU if offered, but as of now we haven't, and Iowa has. Their dad is ISU grad.

    Re: In state recruiting for 2015 class

    Not a scholarship guy, but a guy getting interest that could end up being a contributer at either in state school is DE Max Morris at Dowling. 6'2 230. Believe he is what one would classify as "high motor"
    JUNIOR YEAR
