Week 4: Iowa Recruits Recap

Week four of the high school season is in the books, so lets see how some Iowa recruits and targets performed this week.

Commits

*QB Peyton Mansell was the definition of efficient once again completing 24-35 passes for 325 yards and two TD's through the air.  Mansell also took to the ground 29 times and scampered for 197 yards and four more touchdowns.  He was in on all six of his team's touchdowns and scored the go ahead TD to give his team a late win.

*RB Eno Benjamin proved to be the best Hawkeye commit on the field this weekend.  I was sure no one would one up Mansell's performance, but Eno sure did.  He tallied 317 rushing yards, 147 passing yards, and found the end zone eight times, no that is not a typo.  Benjamin was instrumental in Wylie East's big win.

*RB Ivory Kelly-Martin wasn't his usual self considering he didn't score four rushing touchdowns in the first half this week.  However, he did total 141 yards on the ground and three rushing TD's in Oswego East's win.

*DE Levi Duwa took on his soon-to-be teammate last night in Tristan Wirfs and Mount Vernon.  Duwa recorded a touchdown run for Mid-Prairie.

*CB/S Camron Harrell was awesome for Bradley-Bourbonnais once again hauling in three catches for 92 yards and a TD through the air.  Harrell also ran for three scores and had an 80 yard interception that he took all the way back for six.

*CB Chevin Calloway showed how versatile he is catching a few passes for 61 yards and a TD for Bishop Dunne on Friday night.

*WR Beau Corrales, who makes the leap from target to commit in this week's recap, was stellar in his first high school game since committing.  He hauled in 12 passes for 176 yards and one TD.

Targets

*WR Oliver Martin was held relatively quiet as Iowa City West and Iowa City High battled for the boot on Friday night.  Martin caught just five passes for 41 yards in the Trojans' loss to the Little Hawks.

*ATH Russ Yeast continued to be a YPC machine.  He carried the ball just 10 times, but ran for 114 yards and two touchdowns for Center Grove.

*ATH Alphonso Soko had another nice night for Muscatine in a win.  Soko carried it 27 times for 185 yards and 3 TD's.  I don't know if Iowa is inching closer to an offer, but Soko sure is playing like he wants one.
