SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Kickoff for the 2012 Iowa football is still 67 days away, but Iowa's coaching staff has been busy on the recruiting trails. Three more high school players made verbal commitments with the Hawkeyes on Sunday, according to Scout.com, including the first in-state recruits of the 2013 recruiting class.

Trevon Young

Young is a 6-4, 220-pound linebacker from Lincoln High School in Des Moines. Young is ranked is a two-star recruit according to Scout.com. Young recorded 47 solo tackles - five for loss - and recovered two fumbles during the 2011 season. Offensively, Young also racked up 170 yards and three touchdowns as a receiver. Defensive line coach Reese Morgan Young successfully recruited Young, who also had offers from Iowa State and South Dakota State.

Ike Boettger

Boettger is a 6-5, 220-pound athlete from Cedar Falls High School. Boettger was also recruited by Coach Morgan and will likely fill one of the tight end slots when he arrives on campus. Boettger threw for 750 yards and 9 touchdowns during his junior year as the backup quarterback at Cedar Falls High. Boettger is unranked and didn't have any other scholarship offers, but he'll likely joins Feretnz's list of former quarterbacks who go on to play a different position for the Hawkeyes.

Solomon Warfield

Warfield is a 6-0, 170-pound recruit from St. Edward High School in Lakewood, Ohio. Warfield was the third recruit that Iowa pulled in this past weekend thanks to the help of newly hired offensive line coach Brian Ferentz. Warfield is a three-star recruit and the #40 safety in the nation, according to Scout.com. The Ohio native also had offers from Illinois, Michigan State, Minnesota, and Penn State, among several others but announced via Twitter Sunday night "Just got off the phone with Head coach Ferentz; committed to IOWA baby!! #BlackandYellow."

Iowa found success on the recruiting trail this past weekend, but the Hawkeyes did lose out on one in-state recruit. Sam Raridon, a 6-2, 256-pound defensive tackle out of Valley High School in West Des Moines, decided to commit to Bret Bielma and the Wisconsin Badgers instead of the Hawkeyes. Raridon attended camps at Iowa, Nebraska, and Wisconsin, but only had offers from Iowa and Wisconsin.

Iowa currently has 15 recruits for the 2013 class. National signing day is on February 6, 2013.
