    5 to 7 Rides left, positions targeted?

    After Sunday's haul Iowa stands at 15 known commits. This class should have 20 to 22 rides avaiable. By my math Iowa heads into next season with 67 rides spoken for. Here is a rough breakdown of the roster with commits and existing rides at each position, feel free to correct my numbers.

    QB 1 (3)
    TB 0 (5)
    FB 0 (1)
    WR 3 (8)
    TE 1 (4)
    OL 2 (11)
    DE 1 (8)
    DT 2 (5)
    LB 1 (9)
    CB 1(5)
    S 1 (5)
    K 0 (1)
    P 0 (2)

    I thought they would want one more OL but apparently the only other guy with an offer Thomas Schoaf told 247 sports that Iowa told him it was done with OL for this year and they didn't have room for him anymore.

    Better make all 5-7 RBs. AIRBHG will not go away.

    KF has said that ideally they would take 1 QB in every recruiting class.

    The number in paranthesis is players already accounting for 'ships at each spot. So next season we have Rudock, Sokol, and Beathard who account for the (3). The (5) at tailback would be Johnson, Bullock, Canzeri, Garmon and Hill. Etc.

    Also forgot about Nate Meier- don't know where he will land but bumps accounted schollies to 68.

    Finally I would like Iowa to target at least one tailback, a Mike linebacker, another corner and one more DT. Otherwise best player available.

    Re: 5 to 7 Rides left, positions targeted?

    1x LB, 1x RB seem the most direly needed spots to fill left.

    I'd like to see 1x DE/DL and 1x TE added as well.

    Perhaps they pulled that kid from southern Indiana's schollie offer because they were thinking they could get a kid from Iowa to walk on easier, as far as another OL recruit..

    Maybe Borens is a priority there?? Despite Wisco being his early leader..

    Anyone know anything about Dante Copeland and JJ Hahn (In addition to the more publicized Borens), as far as Iowa interest??

    Is Mallory a walk on or Grey shirt? He could also count against next year's numbers.

    Seems like we need some lb's; maybe they're going to "grow" a couple guys. Rb for this year seems concerning.

    Or it may just be the best player available. Someone like Young might project into numerous positions..one never knows where some these all around athletes may end up based purely on need.

    Re: 5 to 7 Rides left, positions targeted?

    I'm not sure where our Scholarships stand at, but in this article in another thread, it seems to say we have room for 15 this year.....

    ‘Several’ commits come in, now it’s 15 | TheGazette

    Scholarship math is always somewhat shadowy. Iowa doesn’t announce when it gives walk-ons scholarships, but 15 might put Iowa at the 85 limit for the 2013 season.

    According to Rivals.com recruiting rankings, Iowa’s 2013 recruiting class is now No. 26 in the national team rankings. In the Big Ten, only Michigan has more commitments with 22, Rivals’ No. 1 class in the country. Eight schools have more commitments than Iowa at this point. The Hawkeyes are tied with Texas for ninth in the country.
