This is a few days old, but Iowa offered A.J. Epenesa. The kid sounds like he is a stud and of course he was raised by a former player and one of the biggest Hawkeye fans out there. He was the MVP of a camp that included 2015 Jashon Cornell. Could be a Top 50 player.

That kid is not even a fucking Sophomore in High School.

Hopefully Eppy keeps his foot on the gas pedal pushing towards the Hawks. That kid is gonna be a monster.

I would be very surprised/disappointed if he doesn't play at Iowa. The only other huge threat would be Oklahoma and their contingent of former Iowa coaches.

Hopefully by the time he is ready to sign, Iowa should be coming off a good 3 year run.

He is listed at 6'5". He looks a bit taller than Scherff.

Look at how short Scherff's arms are, he can't even reach all the way around Epenesa!

Juan Harris tweeted and then deleted that he was about to be a Hawkeye. He is a big fat fuck with offers already from Virginia and Wisconsin.

Too bad that Ferentz fucked up this year, there are some complete studs with Iowa ties that were to be had from this class. Might be a couple Top 25 players nationally.

From watching the HS championship game that kid is an absolute freak of nature. Lots of bad weight but bad weight in a Kris Jenkins kind of way.

This reminds me... Does anyone from Eastern IA HS in the 90s remember an AA kid from Cedar Rapids Washington named Williams that was about around 6'6 400 lbs? I was always surprised no one took a flyer on him to get him to drop some weight.

The Harris situation seems odd to me but evidently he exceled at summer camps.

Here's Harris at this years Nike Camp in Chicago this year. Lots of bad weight but some pretty decent agility and strong as a bull.

Why does he have his weight on the back of his shirt?

AJ Epenesa looks like he has potential to be my favorite Hawkeye of all time if he comes.

In a stunning, shocking, earth-shaking, tongue-sewed-to-the-carpet development, Harris seems to have decommitted. (TOS poster says that's what 247 profile says.)

I think he picked up a bunch of high profile offers recently.

Football recruiting is the dumbest thing ever at this point.

The kid is a complete flake. I'd be shocked if he ever enrolls at a p5 school as a freshman.

This won't stop dipshits from complaining about kf.

If that kid plays a down of football anywhere, I will be surprised.
