Things are really starting to heat up on the recruiting trail for the Iowa Hawkeyes. The staff picked up a pair of commitments last week as WR Desmond Hutson of Kansas City committed early in the week and was joined by Ohio LB Jestin Jacobs on Friday. That takes the class of 2019 to eight members as of today.
Here’s a look at the group:

Most recruiting pundits are putting the total class size around 18. I think that’s probably low. While it will surely be a smaller class due to the scholarship situation, I don’t expect Iowa to really ever get below 20. For now, that’s the total I’m working with. By my math, that leaves 12 more openings.
With so few openings remaining, where is the staff focusing its time? In short, on some really, really good prospects.
