Legacy WR Henry Marchese of Illinois Commits to Iowa

Iowa lands their third wide receiver of the 2017 class.

Iowa has now landed three wide receiver commits with the latest one being Henry Marchese of Lincolnshire (Ill.) Stevenson. Marchese is a three-star wideout whose father played on the Hawkeyes' 1985 Rose Bowl team. 

"My dad John played at Iowa so I've grown up into an Iowa fan and I love everything about the school," he told Scout's Allen Trieu following the offer from the Hawkeyes last week. "My dad was on the Rose Bowl team in 1985."

Marchese landed his offer from Iowa last Thursday and adds to a group that already consisted of Max Cooper of Wisconsin and Brandon Smith of Mississippi. 

Henry is actually twin and his brother Michael has also been to Iowa many times and very well could end up in Iowa City as a walk-on so that the twin brothers can remain together. 

Marchese's commitment to Iowa comes as no surprise, not just because of his family connection to the university but because of the Hawkeyes' need at wideout and his own love for the school.

"Iowa is right at the top," he told Midwest recruiting analyst Allen Trieu a week ago. "Having been a fan since I was little, it's always been a dream playing for the black and yellow."

It's now a dream come true as Marchese becomes the 15th commitment of the class for Iowa.
