Iowa has targeted the state of Texas hard in the 2017 class and they continue to do so, even at the quarterback position. It's a deep year at signal caller and wideout in the Lone Star State and the Hawkeyes hope to take advantage. They've offered several receivers from Texas, and now their second quarterback.
Kamron Fields of Garland was the first to collect an offer from Iowa and he is now joined by Peyton Mansell of Belton. The Texas native is a 6-foot-2, 190 pound prospect that has already been seen in person and evaluated by Hawkeye offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Greg Davis.
"I'm really happy about the offer," Mansell commented soon afterwards. "Especially since it's such a high-caliber and high character program."
Iowa commit Eno Benjamin has even joined in on the pursuit. The Hawkeyes commit from Wylie, Texas made his thoughts known on twitter.
The offer to Mansell came after Davis' visit to Belton so it shows that the assistant and the Hawkeyes have become believers in his talents. Mansell shared some of the feedback he received from Davis.
"Coach Davis liked what kind of player I was," Mansell pointed out. "He also liked how I carried myself on and off the field."
Mansell is definitely a name to know moving forward as the wait for a quarterback to jump aboard continues.
"I really like Iowa," he admitted. "I'm going to try and get up to the campus for a visit."
