It is not often that a large school like Iowa takes more than one prospect from the same high school on more than one occasion in the same recruiting season. However, that could end up occurring this season with a few schools around the country catching the Hawkeye coaches' eyes.
HTO.com spoke to Pioneer Head Coach Chuck White on the same day that it happens the Hawkeyes had sent in their senior film request. The Hawks also asked to check the transcripts on three Pioneer prospects. The three prospects the Hawks will be adding to their radar screen are the following:
6'3 185 Oseloka Keys (QB/WR/DB) -
"Oseloka is a guy that many will jump on once they get the chance to see his senior film. He has averaged over 300 yards of total offense for us in each game so far. He played as a tailback last season until week 8, and since then has been a tremendous QB. I know he'd like the chance to play QB in college, but some view him as an athlete. He just needs to get his test score taken care of, and everything will take its place."
6'4 300 Andre Bouldin (DT) -
"Andre attended the Michigan camp during the summer where he ran a 5.0. He benches 385 and is very athletic for his size. He also lines up as a tight end, and is our second leading receiver right now. Schools will see his ability to be explosive on either side of the ball. Andre did not have a big junior season so many schools didn't see highlights, but they will notice him on senior film."
6'4 190 Kenny Pankey (WR/DB) -
"Right now, its unfortunate that Kenny is banged up. A high thigh bruise has kept him out since week two, but he should be returning soon. Schools will not get much of a chance to see him this fall, but I will hope to get more word out."
Also, HTO.com was able to learn the Hawks have scouted other Ann Arbor talent besides the trio at Pioneer. One prospect to keep an eye out for is 6'2 240 LB/DE Ravon Ellis of Ann Arbor Huron High School.
"Ravon had a very good junior season at Huron," Coach White added. "He is one of their co-captains, and is even receiving time at FB. I think they have been switching him up as a LB and DL during games."
Oseloka Keys has been mentioned as another Clint Solomon type possibility. Does Coach White see potential in Oseloka as a WR?
"I would compare Oseloka to Michigan's Jermain Gonzalez right now. A lot of MAC schools, including offers from Bowling Green and Eastern Michigan, have said they love him as a quarterback. I believe he can thrive as a quarterback in the right system. However, he also has big play ability at other positions because of his size and athleticism. It will be a shame for us to see him leave our offense after this fall, I will tell you that."
While these kids have not gained the offers nor interest of Fort Worth Dunbar's foursome at this time, these could be players to watch out for in December. Wouldn't it be something for Hawk fans to see the Hawks roll into Ann Arbor and State College, PA (Jonathan Stupar) and come away with results!
