Wegher Makes The Call

Hawkeye fans have been on pins and needles waiting for top in-state prospect Brandon Wegher to make his decision. On Saturday night, the wait was over and Brandon Wegher made his announcement that he would be playing football for the University of Iowa. Learn more in this recruiting update.

Brandon Wegher, the top player in the state of Iowa, has given his verbal commitment to the University of Iowa.

Wegher is a 5-11, 206-pound running back out of Sioux City Heelan High School. He's listed as a four-star runningback, #14 at his position in the country. After a very hush-hush recruitment period, Wegher made his announcement on Saturday night, less than a week before his high school team kicks off its season against Lawton-Bronson.

Brandon spent this summer working hard to improve his numbers, and did a great job. According to his Scout.com profile, Wegher made the following strides during off-season training:

Weight: 206-Up 14 pounds since spring

10 Yard: 1.31 seconds- Down .03 seconds since spring

40 Yard: 4.28 seconds- Down .13 seconds since spring

Pro Agility: 4.03 seconds- Down .07 seconds since spring

Vert: 36"- Up 1 inch since spring

Bench: 345- Up 40 pounds since spring

Squat: 485- Up 15 since spring

Hang Clean: 260- Up 40 pounds since spring

Wegher becomes the fifth current known commitment of the 2009 class, and the fourth from the state of Iowa. Wegher's choice comes less than a month after fellow four-star in-stater Keenan Davis made his pledge to the Hawkeyes out of Washington High School in Cedar Rapids.

We'll have more from Wegher on his decision soon, so check back soon!
