    Iowa HS's with most D1 players.

    I was interested in which high schools produced the most D1 football players. I figured that Valley and Bettendorf would be at the top. I looked at the 2007 rosters of the 3 instate D1 schools then any players I knew from Iowa that went out of state.

    Cedar Falls had the most with 7 players, all playing at UNI. Surprising for me was that Humboult tied with CR Washington for second with 6 guys. I am sure there might be more out of state guys I am missing, if so feel free to add them.

    Re: Iowa HS's with most D1 players.

    CR Wash will soon be adding a very good one to the list in Keenan Davis.

    Also, Will Suess was on the Indiana roster last year, although I think he has since transferred.

    Re: Iowa HS's with most D1 players.

    My old high school, Muscatine High School, are pretty much all Cyclones. Even though it is way here on the east side on the Mississippi.

    Ben Barkema --> ISU
    Nick Frere --> ISU
    Nate Frere --> ISU

    I guess before that Ben's older brother C.J. Barkema (who was about 6'7") went to iowa, but never really saw the field.

    It's encouraging to see how well we recruit Des Moines, from what I've seen in high school playoffs, there just seems to be more talent coming out of the middle of the state.

    UNI isnt really a D1 school in football. I wonder if all the Cedar Falls kid are walk ons to the home town school.

    Sure theyre D1. Just a different classification than Iowa State. And they do offer scholarships.
