Football nabs first 2012 commit


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

More than two months after national signing day for the class of 2011, the Iowa football team has received its first commitment for the class of 2012.

Mitchell Keppy gave the Hawkeyes an oral commitment Wednesday. Keppy is a 6-5, 287-pound offensive lineman from Port Byron, Ill..

In addition to playing football at Riverdale High, Keppy is an accomplished prep wrestler, finishing as a state runner-up at heavyweight in each of the last two seasons.

He also has Hawkeye football in his blood. His father, Myron Keppy, lettered at Iowa as a defensive lineman in 1986-87.

The Hawkeyes’ current incoming recruiting class (2011) includes 24 players and was ranked as the nation’s 30th-best by Rivals.com.
