Seems like a quality kid from a character and work ethic perspective. Clearly he is a physical specimen. I think he's a three year starter.

Wouldn't be surprised at all to see him in the two deeps as a RS FR
He and Jackson as bookend tackles is a really exciting thought and with our current depth chart at the position I wouldn't be surprised if we saw it as early as 2018.

Did Iowa even offer?
Yeah they offered hem. The Lombardi family told a friend of mine Iowa didnt recruit very hard and that he was under unenthused by their offense and wide receiver targets

With a kid like that Iowa will usually give him a chance to start out at QB if he wants to try it and then sit him down later and tell him that he's more likely to see the field somewhere else. I doubt they told him he was definitely getting moved right away.

Then the kid says, "Fuck you. I'm transferring." Then he ends up playing in the NFL at the position you told him he should move to.

Pic of Tristan Wirfs that a buddy just randomly sent. I guess he's wrestling Aaron Costello (HW champ) here:

That pic is real? I thought it was for sure a photoshop.

Levi Duwa has healed up from his foot injury and is throwing shot put this spring.

Decent throw. Pretty close to his best. And several sources said he'd miss track. Good sign.

Wirfs threw 60' 9" in the shot last night and 166' 10 3/4" in the discus. Kid is a beast!

Great SP mark just a couple inches off his best. Discus was not as good relative to his PR, but good considering how early it is in the season and the shitty weather.

Threw 65' 10.5" tonight which is 3rd best in Iowa history.

Nice. It might be 4th best now. I think Phelps went 65'11 last week. Might be wrong on the inch part.

Phelps is incredible, btw. Just a junior. Went 191 and change lastweek in the discus. Broke his dad's 1a record. He'll hold both all time records probably by the end of this year. Sister is all time discus record holder.

He doesn't even appear to be all that big.

We are seeing maybe the greatest year ever for throws. Might have multiple guys over 200 feet.

I feel like it's good when you throw things past where the measuring lines end... Wirfs is a beast.
