Iowa is still making wide receiver recruiting an emphasis on the trail with the 2017 class. They've received commitments from two at the position so far (Brandon Smith and Gavin Holmes) but are hoping to land at least one more, possibly more. They took another step in that direction on Sunday night.
The Hawkeyes offered Georgetown (Texas) wideout Beau Corrales earlier in the evening. He's currently already committed to Texas State. However, the Iowa staff has spotted him and now are targeting him.
"I'm pretty close friends with Iowa commits Gavin Holmes and Peyton Mansell and so I think that they've been talking to the Iowa staff about me a bit," Corrales said to Scout. "After my game last Friday, the Iowa coaches contacted me asking for test scores and stuff like that. Then this Sunday I talked with coach (Greg) Davis on the phone and received the offer."
Despite the commitment to Texas State, he's grateful of the interest and opportunity given to him by Iowa.
"I'm a little shocked honestly," Corrales admitted. "I'm grateful that they believe I'm a good enough player to give me an offer even though I'm more of an under-the-radar guy and already committed. I'm definitely blessed to receive the offer. We just talked about the style of offense they ran and my friends that were committed."
The Hawkeye offer is a meaningful one but his commitment status is unchanged. He's still aligned with Texas State but Corrales knows he has a new opportunity worth considering.
"There's definitely going to be a lot of discussions going on these next couple weeks between myself, parents, and my own coaching staff here at Georgetown," he noted.
A visit to Iowa City could be in the cards for Corrales.
"Possibly," he answered when asked if he'd take a visit to see Iowa. "I know that Texas State doesn't want me going on visits or much of that matter. But like I said, there's going to need to be a lot of discussion to go on these next couple weeks."
