The Iowa Hawkeyes are going to have a talented crop of recruits in their home-state in the 2019 class as that group of kids is already off to a fast start in recruiting.
One such prospect is Ezra Miller, a 6-foot-6, 290-pound offensive tackle who the Hawkeyes offered on Sunday at their junior day becoming his first scholarship offer.
"My initial reaction was just an immediate smile, and just thinking 'oh my God, Iowa.'"
Miller had a chance to see just about everything Iowa has to offer as a football program on his visit.
"The day was fun, it was just nice to get around the facilities and talk to the coaching staff. The coaches and I just talked about how I was doing, how athletics were, what's important to work on and what's important to them as coaches."
As for other programs recruiting him, Miller says, "Iowa State is the only other school showing a lot of interest towards me at the moment."
A lot of in-state kids grow up with the Hawkeyes their whole lives, Miller says he was not as interested in football early on, but he found his way to them later in his childhood.
"When I was really young I was more into basketball just do to the fact that both my older brothers played it all year round and I got to watch it constantly. But I did enjoy Notre Dame as a football team, and as I got older I got more local and got a lot more into Iowa."
