Hawkeyes add three to recruiting class

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Just a few days before the deadline, the Iowa football team added three members to its recruiting class of 2013.

The Hawkeyes filled some holes at two key positions on Feb. 2: one in running back Akrum Wadley and another in wide receiver Anjeus Jones.

Wadley, previously committed to Temple, helped lead his team, Weequahic (N.J.), to the Group 2 final state championship while accumulating more than 1,500 yards and 29 touchdowns in his senior campaign.

Jones, hailing from Dallas, didn’t put up any eye-popping numbers his senior year (390 yards, 7 touchdowns, 23 catches), but the wideout offers a large body and speed (6-3, 4.49 40-yard dash) that fits best for Iowa offensive coordinator Greg Davis’ schemes.

The last recruit is Decorah linebacker Josey Jewell, who committed to the Hawkeyes late Sunday evening. Jewell was previously committed to the University of Northern Iowa but switched to the Hawkeyes once he was offered a full scholarship.

“I am very thankful and excited to have the opportunity to become a Hawkeye,” Jewell said in a release put out by Decorah High. “My teammates, teachers, and coaches have done a great deal to help me reach this point. I am hopeful that the lessons learned thus far from them will help me contribute as much as I can to the Iowa football program.”

In his senior year, Jewell helped lead his squad to the class 3A state championship, and he was named the Cedar Rapids Gazette’s regional player of the year.

Today, all high school and junior college football players may officially commit.
