The Hawkeyes picked up two more verbal commitments this past week, both along the defensive line. The first is Carl Davis from Sterling Heights, MI. Davis is a 3-star defensive tackle by both Scout and Rivals.

High School:
Davis plays for the Adlai E. Stevenson Spartans. Kirk Ferentz likes his winners, and much like other Hawkeye recruits Derby, Morris, Coker, etc...Davis plays on a undefeated team as the Spartans have outscored its opponents 278-113 through 7 games. Davis has done his part on defense with 22 tackles and 4 sacks.

Davis has really nice size for a tackle (something Iowa has been lacking) coming in a 300 pounds. He also had some nice offers from around the Big Ten, so he is a really good pick up. This class is starting to look very good in the front 7 on defense and it has been fun seeing how it has come together.
