Once again the Iowa Western program is loaded with several FBS prospects entering the upcoming season. I count at least 12 prospects that could sign at the FBS level in December if all goes according to plan. That is no surprise when it comes to Coach Strohmeier's program.
Here's the details on the athletes that will accumulate serious college interest heading into the Fall.
Andrew Davis. He's one of the top junior college tight ends in the country that would have held a considerable amount of offers. He chose to end his recruitment early and commit to Illinois. At 6-foot-6 and 220 pounds, he'll be a quality target for Tim Beckman. He has three years to play two.
Paul Harris. The 6-foot-3, 200 pound receiver left Tennessee to enter the junior college ranks. His recruitment will take off more and more I expect, but Louisville has made the best early impression. He'll have three years to play two.
Charlie Rogers. A former safety for Iowa State, the 6-foot-1, 210 pound defensive back has been focusing on Illinois, Minnesota, and Utah State the most. He's a quality athlete and will have two years to play two.
Tay Bender. He's a quarterback transfer from Kansas State that was all-conference last year. He'll have two years to play two. His recruitment has yet to play out much thus far. He holds an offer from Eastern Michigan.
Mike Edwards. He's a large defensive tackle that could also see his array of offers in the future, and already holds two. He'll have three years to play two.
Mondo Williams. He comes from Iowa City West High School has well and is considered the team's fastest player. Williams is a fluid athlete that also stars as a returner on special teams, in addition to cornerback. He'll have two years left to play two.
DaShaughn Terry. He's another long cornerback from Iowa Western that will continue to gain recruiting interest as his process progresses. He'll have three years of eligibility left to play three.
Marchez Coates. He's a transfer from North Carolina State that will have two years left to play two. The Iowa Western cornerback will be under consideration for the best FBS prospect on the roster when all is said and done.
The next four prospects will arrive at Iowa Western very soon for their first season with the program. They all transferred from FBS squads.
Kelvin Rainey. The outside linebacker that came from South Carolina to sign with the Reivers is an excellent pass rusher that the Iowa Western coaching staff is very excited about.
Kevin Robbins. He's a defensive end transfer from Georgia Tech. Robbins was pursued hard out of high school by Michigan State, North Carolina, and Rutgers, in addition to the Yellow Jackets.
Jayme Thompson. The former Ohio State safety left the Buckeye program after the past season. He's known for being a physical player and will garner considerable college interest once he hits the field at Iowa Western.
Paris Bostick. The former outside linebacker at Georgia has a new home at the junior college level. He will be one of the most heavily recruited junior prospects in the nation in my estimation.
