Iowa swipes tight end recruit from MAC school

[ 0 ] July 26, 2014 |

The Iowa football coaching staff has landed another recruit at the expense of a team from the Mid-American Conference.

Tight end Nate Vejvoda announced Saturday afternoon on Twitter that he has committed to Iowa.

Vejvoda previously was committed to Miami (Ohio), which is a member of the Mid-American Conference. He switched his commitment to Iowa while visiting the Iowa City campus this weekend.

A senior to be at Providence Catholic High School in New Lenox, Ill., Vejvoda is at least the 12th player to commit to Iowa’s 2015 recruiting class. All known recruits are high school seniors.

He is also the latest recruit to de-commit from a MAC school in order to attend Iowa.

Senior receiver Kevonte Martin-Manley had committed to Bowling Green before switching to Iowa. Sophomore cornerback Desmond King had chosen Central Michigan before switching to the Hawkeyes. Incoming linebacker Ben Niemann had committed to Northern Illinois, where his father is the defensive coordinator, before flipping to Iowa.

Former defensive back Kevin Buford also signed with Iowa in 2012 after originally committing to Toledo, but he has since left the program.
