Iowa's most recent commit for the 2018 class is wideout Tyrone Tracy of Indianapolis. The Decatur Central product will play in the slot and also be used in the backfield a bit for the Hawkeyes. He's a part of a very talented family. His cousin could find himself in Iowa City as well.
Kirk Ferentz and the Hawkeyes have shown plenty of interest already in Larry Tracy, a 2019 cornerback from the same location. But Iowa will not be the only team that gives him a thorough evaluation.
"Iowa is already talking to me," the younger Tracy said. "Illinois and Cincinnati have also shown interest. Louisville wants me to camp. A lot of MAC schools like me."
His recruitment is clearly headed in the right direction, and it could be in a better place if not for a injury-shortened season this past year.
"I started varsity my freshman year and then I was only able to play four games my sophomore year because I broke my foot," Tracy explained. "I have to come back from that. Teams want me to come to camp so they can see my progress in person. They'll offer once they know that I'm definitely healthy and haven't taken any steps back."
Tracy will work out as a cornerback in camps for Iowa, Cincinnati, Louisville and Illinois. Those are four of the bigger schools that have indicated a clear and strong interest in him already. Following his cousin Tyrone to Iowa City intrigues him but shouldn't be considered automatic if an offer comes his way.
"I can see myself going to Iowa with him," Larry Tracy admitted. "But I also have interest in branching out and carving my own path."
