Iowa had to swallow some more bitter news on the recruiting trail as Georgetown (Texas) wide receiver Beau Corrales, who committed to Iowa a couple a months ago, has announced that he is re-opening his recruitment back up.
Corrales visited the Hawkeyes not long ago and committed on a trip to Iowa City earlier in the season. It was assumed he would commit and he did. The Texas native had also formed a tight bond with quarterback commit Peyton Mansell. Because of all that, this is a pretty shocking development.
The 1,000-yard receiver made his announcement on twitter.
"Unfortunately, I've been having second thoughts about my future being a Hawk," Corrales admitted in his statement. "Iowa was my first power five offer and I feel as if that I chose them too quickly out of excitement without giving myself time to truly think through such a big decision as this."
That sounds like a statement from someone that is expecting a few more power five offers to come his way. He's also picked up an offer from Indiana since committing to the Hawkeyes.
This moves Iowa's commit total back down to 14. They've lost four commitments this cycle: defensive tackle Juan Harris from the Midwest, and Texans Eno Benjamin, Chevin Calloway, and Beau Corrales.
