Seals' scouting report – Talented in-state wideout has already been labeled as a possible second-coming of Lane Danielsen or Jack Whitver. Kanwischer is a fundamentally sound wideout that isn't afraid to do the dirty work, and could be a valuable special teamer.

ISU wide receivers coach Mike Grant on Kanwischer – "He has a great work ethic and reminds me a lot of Lane Danielsen and Jack Whitver. Levi already has real nice size and strength. I was happy that we got him. His talents are yet to be tapped. I got the opportunity to work with him in camp and fell in love with his speed and agility. That's why I wanted him to be a part of our program."

Short-term outlook – Is likely a few seasons away from much playing time, but could develop into a very solid receiver in the Cyclone system.
