Yikes. Legacy that was 100% Crystal Balled to Iowa before the racism stuff
First Parks. Now Alt. Wouldn’t be surprised if they miss out on a lot more.

Hok said a few weeks ago “see! This isn’t going to affect recruiting! We are going to grow from this.” Whether they grow or not, KKKirk at the helm is and will always affect recruiting after this.

Oh yea, they ain’t gonna get Maro either.

Yeah both Parks and Alt would be at Iowa if it wasn't for all this. Parks hurts because Iowa struggles to recruit that position and Alt really hurts because he's a legacy

We have 4 OL in this class rated higher than Alt, three of whom had way better offer lists. I don't think we've lost a single commit in the past 3-4 weeks and actually had a stud DB re-commit. But I do understand why you'd want to talk about anything other than ISU's class right now.

And LOL at Maro. He doesn't even have an Iowa offer. Yeah, you sure stuck it to us on that one.

Wait. So, you think Iowa's OL is better than ND's?
Our 2021 OL class is definitely better. Not sure what ND's roster looks like, I was talking about young OL talent, guys who will still have 3+ years left once Alt would get there. We're pretty stacked.

I think Iowa is Myslinski or nothing along the OL for additional OL commits in 2021. Maro doesn't even have an Iowa offer.

And define "miss out on a lot more". We are only taking 4-5 more and are only actively recruiting about 8 kids that have offers.

I'd take ND's line 10 out of 10 times. Regardless of a single class. Especially since the racist strength coach is gone.

Crazy offer list for him. Could be a nice follow-up to Linderbomb at C.

Honestly, Hawkeye fans I know always said that Doyle was the reason for the Hawkeye Line success. You don’t think there will be any change?
Obviously there will be change. But it's not like Doyle was out there teaching the OL blocking technique. Braithwaite has been with Iowa's S&C program for 15 years, that'll help I think with the transition.

Which is a mistake because you aren't get Alt or any other OL offered
We have 4 very good lineman already committed and I’m not sold on Alt backing off. I’m sure we can take some other kid whose not very well know and turn him into the next Marshall Yanda, Robert Gallery, Brandon Scherff, etc.

That's a surprise.
Is it though?

The Crimson Tide and Badgers led most of the categories analyzed, and though offensive linemen can be difficult to evaluate individually, when you look at the draft results for both teams, it's easy to see why these two top the list. It will be difficult to dethrone these two programs, but Oklahoma and Notre Dame have been making a big push as of late. The Irish in particular have had a run of top offensive linemen taken in the NFL draft and seemingly have more on the way.
