Hawkeye recruiting: Four-star quarterback, lineman visit Iowa City

[ 0 ] November 23, 2013 |

A four-star quarterback from Michigan and a four-star offensive lineman from St. Louis were among approximately two dozen recruits who attended Saturday’s Iowa-Michigan game at Kinnick Stadium.

Tyler Wiegers, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound quarterback from Country Day High School in Detroit, is considering Iowa after de-committing from Rutgers last week.

Four-star offensive lineman Brian Wallace, who attends Christian Brothers College High School in St. Louis, also attended Saturday’s game as part of his official visit. The 6-6, 304-pound Wallace has Iowa among his top five schools, along with Alabama, Missouri, Arkansas and Nebraska.

Iowa freshman running back Jonathan Parker graduated from Christian Brothers High School and is being redshirted this season.

Running back Markel Smith also took an official visit to Iowa this weekend and is already committed to the Hawkeyes. Smith attends St. John Vianney High School in St. Louis and previously was committed to Missouri. Smith set a Missouri single-game state record with 541 rushing yards and seven touchdowns this season.

Ames teammates Sam Straub, who plays quarterback, and running back Clifford Kwaw-Mensah, also took unofficial visits to Iowa over the weekend. The 5-8, 185-pound Kwaw-Mensah broke the Class 4-A rushing record as a senior with 2,806 yards.

Iowa has 16 players committed to its 2014 recruiting class, all of whom are high school seniors.

NCAA rules prohibit Iowa coaches from commenting on a specific high school player until the recruit has signed a national letter of intent. The national signing period for football will start on Feb. 5.
