One of the best players in the state of Iowa for the 2018 class is Cedar Rapids (Iowa) Washington offensive guard Andrew Todd. The 6-foot-4, 270 pound prospect already holds an offer from Iowa State. The Hawkeyes have shown a great deal amount of interest, though.
Kirk Ferentz and Iowa have yet to offer an in-state prospect in the 2018 class but Todd could definitely be the first at some point. He was at the Hawkeye Tailgater over the weekend and throughly enjoyed his stay.
"It was awesome," he said. "I had a blast."
An offer did not come but one could not be too far away from coming his way. It is possible that the Hawkeye staff would just like to see a bit of game film from the Fall before pulling the trigger.
"I think (they want to see some film in the Fall before offering)," Todd shared. "I don't know exactly though."
Despite the lack of offer, it was still a positive trip for Todd and he was able to gather the information and time he needed from the program.
"It was definitely about just getting a chance to know the staff better," he explained. "(Brian Ferentz) is a really great guy. He's a no "BS" type of guy and tells you how it is. During the visit I was able to talk with some of the incoming freshmen who had been there all summer and they all said he was a major factor into why they picked Iowa. He's really funny and definitely a guy I could see myself playing for."
Todd's parents are alums from the University of Iowa but he holds an Iowa State offer. He explained that situation and where his allegiances lie.
"An offer from Iowa would mean a lot to me but I really appreciate what Iowa State has done in potentially investing in me as an athlete and a person," he pointed out. "I really like both schools and I'm excited for my future with both."
