2011 Commits: Lomax, Lowdermilk, Bullock, Canzeri, and Collins

on

Jordan Lomax

Jordan Lomax silently committed to Iowa over the weekend but made it official late on Monday. He is a defensive back from DeMatha Catholic High School in Maryland...the same high school as Marcus Coker and recruits Cyrus Kouandjio and Darian Cooper. Over on HawkCentral.com, Lomax said that he is "trying his best" to push his fellow teammates to follow suit and come to Iowa and that he hopes the pile from DeMatha to Iowa continues. I would have to agree. DeMatha, and really the whole Maryland area has been a hot-spot for Iowa recruiting the past couple of years. Also out of Maryland are fellow commit Nico Law, and current players Jim Poggi and Anthony Ferguson (though I don't think Ferguson is still on the team).

Lomax is a consensus 3-star recruit. He played corner, safety, and some wide receiver in high school. In his video he looks like some very strong cover skills, but what impressed me more what his ability to read the offense and make a play...either coming up and making a tackle in the backfield on a run or adjusting to the ball on a pass to pick it off. So to me he looks more like a safety prospect.

Stats:
  • 2009 Defense - 30 tackles, 1 interceptions, 4 pass breakups

Johnny Lowdermilk

Lowdermilk commits to Iowa without even visiting the school. His father, Kirk Lowdermilk, know Kirk Ferentz from his days in the NFL and basically told his son to go to Iowa if offered. Well, Iowa offered. Lowdermilk played quarterback and linebacker for Carrollton High School. He was basically offered Mike Orloff's spot (who is now headed to UCLA) so I'm guessing he'll be sticking at linebacker. However, he is the type of moldable athlete type of player that Iowa loves to get and fit into a specific role. So he could end up at one of the linebacker spots, at safety, or who knows, maybe some where on offense.

Stats:
  • Defense - 106 tackles, 2 interceptions

Damon Bullock

Iowa is doing its best to replace the hoards of running backs that have left the program recently. Bullock is a speedy running back from Texas. He missed most of his junior season with a broken collarbone so flew kind of under the radar. However, he put up some big numbers in his senior season at Mansfield High School. He visited Iowa over the weekend and Iowa decided to offer. The Hawkeyes has been leaning more towards the bigger backs lately, but Bullock could provide a nice change of pace--a faster pace.

Stats:
  • Rushing - 239 carries, 1606 yards, 22 TDs

Jordan Canzeri

Canzeri is another speedy running back that the coaches offered late in the game. His stats are ridiculous, as is his film. Pretty much every time he touches the ball he just outruns everyone for a touchdown. Seriously, his video is crazy. Some of his runs he literally cuts back across the entire field only to turn right back around and cut back the other way...and of course scores. Like Bullock he could be a good change of pace guy after Coker (or maybe Coe) has beat up on the defense a little.

Stats:
  • Rushing - 222 carries, 2048 yards, 36 TDs

Marcus Collins

Collins is another of those moldable athletes. He's currently projected as a linebacker, which he played in high school at Monsignor Bonner, but could play a variety of positions. He was super excited by the Iowa offer, though he never visited.

Stats:
  • Defense - 90 tackles, 15 sacks
