IOWA CITY, Ia. - The University of Iowa is expected to sign 21 players to national letters of intent Wednesday when the football signing period begins.
There was a time when fans would wait until these kids showed up at Iowa to get their first look at them. These days, you can see a lot of prospects when they're in junior high.
Not everybody is that fanatical about it as some of us, so I decided to see what videos I could find to familiarize Hawkeye fans with the new guys. And I'm sure the crazies wouldn't mind getting reacquainted with the troops.
