Wilson a Hawkeye

One of the Iowa's main need areas in the 2012 recruiting class was wide receiver. The Hawkeyes took the first step in satisfying that need by landing Dublin, Ohio receiver Cameron Wilson on Monday.

Iowa received its second known verbal for the Class of 2012 it was learned Monday morning. Scout.com's Allen Trieu confirmed the news that Dublin, Ohio WR Cameron Wilson had pledged to the Hawkeyes.

"I really like Coach (Erik) Campbell," Wilson told Trieu in a text message.

Wilson is rated as a three-star prospect on Scout.com's five-star scale. The service ranks the 6-foot-2, 195-pounder as the No. 65 WR in the country.

Cameron Wilson finished his junior season with 77 receptions for 1,075 yards and six touchdowns. He also had two touchdowns rushing. He says he can bench 285-pounds, squat 315 and has a 30-inch vertical jump.

Wilson plans to major in either business or communications. He reports a 2.6 core GPA and a 21 ACT.

Wilson said to Scout.com earlier in the recruiting process:

"I think I can run good after the catch. I run good routes and I know how to use my body. I have good technique and run routes the right way.

"I want to be more explosive and get faster. I also want to work on catching the ball when I'm going against someone one-on-one."

Wilson joins Mitch Keppy as verbal commitments in the 2012 Iowa class.

Wilson also held scholarship offers from Boston College, Bowling Green, Illinois, Kentucky, Purdue, South Florida, Syracuse, Toledo and West Virginia.
