Iowa Commitment Update: Part #1

Get the latest on Nicholas Law, Melvin Spears, Melvin Gordon, Torrey Campbell, and Austin Vincent from HawkeyeInsider.com in part 1 of our commitment recruiting update.

Nicholas Law- Bishop McNamara's season will come to end this Friday. The Mustangs are 0-9 on the season and will look for their only win of the season against DeMatha. A tough task as the Stags have major D1 talent up and down their roster. Including guys like Iowa offerees Darian Cooper and Cyrus Kouandjio.


Melvin Spears- Defensive stats are hard to come by, but we can guarantee Spears leads the Allen Eagles in tackles. The North Texas team took a hit in most national polls this week with a loss to Hebron and even fell out of the Top 10 in the state of Texas. That said, they only have one loss on the season and will look to bounce back this week, before heading into the playoffs next week.


Gordon has 34 touchdowns in 2010, which is good for 1st in Wisconsin


Melvin Gordon- The senior running back is 8th in the state of Wisconsin in rushing yards according to Wisconsin Sports Network. Gordon has 118 carries for 1711 yards and 34 touchdowns, which is good for 1st in the state. Kenosha Bradford is currently 10-1 on the year and is in the 3rd round of the state playoffs. WSN also has the Red Devils ranked 3rd in the state in Division 1.


Jordan Walsh- One of the nation's best high school offensive lineman, the senior has Glenbard West into the second round of the Illinois 7A State Playoffs. Ranked anywhere from 4th to 7th in Illinois polls, the Hilltoppers will play this Friday against 9-1 Lincoln Way East. The Griffins are also one of Illinois' best high school teams, appearing higher than Glenbard West in most polls.


Torrey Campbell- Barron Collier is 6-2 on the year and has two final games before the post season. Campbell has done a little of everything for the Cougars. Mostly playing cornerback, teams are only averaging just over 70 yards a game passing on Collier. It's safe to say Campbell doesn't see many balls thrown his way. On offense, Campbell has seen limited action at running back, but has made an instant impact when he has lined up in the backfield. On 32 carries, he has 226 yards and four touchdowns, good for an average of 7.2 yards per carry.


Austin Vincent- DeSoto is loaded with talent and senior receiver Austin Vincent is doing his part. Vincent only has 16 catches, but 337 yards and six touchdowns. That is good enough for an average catch of nearly 20.5 yards. With four future D-1 receivers on their team, the Eagles spread the ball around. Currently six players have over 15 catches on the season. DeSoto is currently 8-1 on the year and are ranked 7th in Class 5A Texas football. Vincent is clearly the deep threat for the Eagles.
