Another interesting read during the dead period
BHGP looks back at the 2008 Iowa football recruiting class.
I haven't followed the Hawkeyes with such depth as I have recently, but wow 12 2* recruits. That is unreal. While I am not ready to hang my hat on the bad season as a result of just the 2008 class, this is too big of issue not to overlook. How can Iowa have such a bad recruiting year...Yikes.
The last two years of recruiting have been pretty darn good if you ask me. 2014 is another key year for Iowa (even though every year is). But this year we really need to address the DL. I think Iowa's days of recruiting that many 2* have gone to rest. At least I hope.
Good find here.
Jewel Hampton could have been a great Hawkeye and a big difference maker, really wish he could have stayed healthy.
Change the running back name and you could probably say that for the next four recruiting classes to follow.
No, not really
Jewel Hampton tore it up at SIU and made an NFL team.
Absolutely, without his injuries, Hampton would have had a great career for Iowa. He had a really good year at SIU, but had he been injury free with Iowa's line he would have been phenomenal.
I didn't follow recruiting in 08, and I've honestly never heard of even half of these dudes. No wonder last year saw 4 wins.
