2013 National Signing Day: Iowa
Coming off the program’s worst season since 2000, it’s difficult to get a read on this class. There are no five- or four-star players in a class that is heavy on offensive players. In fact, only one Big Ten school signed more than Iowa’s 12. (Michigan has 15.) It’s a good thing, too, because the Hawkeyes struggled mightily on that side of the ball in 2012.

Colin Goebel and Sean Welsh are building blocks for the offensive line. TE Jon Wisnieski may be the best prospect for a program that traditionally churns out top tight ends. Solomon Warfield and Malik Rucker could be special safeties. JC WR Damond Powell needs to impact now for what largely was a flightless passing game in 2012.
