Hawkeyes, Cyclones Ink Recruits on National Signing Day
Wednesday was National Signing Day, or the final day 2016 football recruits could sign their letters of intent to play at the college level.
So how did Iowa and Iowa State do?
Traditionally, schools get 60-70% of their yearly recruits on this day.
The Hawkeyes earned the 42nd best recruiting class in the country, according to Rivals.com.
Iowa’s 2016 class is led by a group of out-of-state guys. Linebacker Kyle Taylor (Washington D.C.), utility guys Emmanuel Rugamba (Naperville, IL) and Toks Akinribade (Brownburg, IN), and Tight End Noah Font (Omaha, NE) lead next year’s group of freshman coming into Iowa City.

The Cyclones received the nation’s 54th best recruiting class, according to Rivals.
While Iowa State is projected to have the inferior overall class, they did get the best individual player out of the two schools. 4-star Offensive Lineman Sean Foster (Mundelein, IL) signed his letter of intent to play for Iowa State along with 14 3-star recruits. Former Blue Chip QB Jacob Park is getting his 2nd chance in Ames as well.
