Current Players

Seniors: 1 - Reisner
Juniors: 2 - Herman, Furlong
Sophomores: 3 - Derby, Griggs, Gimm
RS Freshmen: 1 - Getz
Freshmen: 1 - Fiedorowicz

Iowa has more tight ends on its roster than most college football teams these days. However, the vast majority of the players are largely unproven without much game experience. Iowa's offense often features 2 and 3 TE sets, so depth is required at the position. Everyone is hoping Fiedorowicz will live up to his hype and I expect one of the sophomore to emerge as an option next year. Herman is decent as well and there is a strong possibility of someone (like Vier) switching positions and ending up at TE. It would be nice to get an "elite" tight end though, either this year or next to fill the void that Meyers and Moeaki (and Reisner after this year) left.

2011 Needs: 1

Prospects Offered

Nick Vannett Westerville, OH | 4*
Links: Scout, Rivals
The Ohio native was excited about his offers from Ohio State and Notre Dame so Iowa is probably a dark-horse right now.

Ray Hamilton Strongsville, OH | Scout: 3*
Links: Scout, Rivals
Hamilton is interested in an offense that uses its tight ends a lot, but his dad also played for Rich Rodriguez, so he has a Michigan tie. He may be Iowa's best shot of the current TEs with offers though.

Christian French Cedar Rapids, IA | Scout: 3*
Links: Scout, Rivals
A few months ago, Iowa seemed to be in the lead for French, but he has been adding a lot of offers lately and is exploring his options. Though he lives just 20 minutes away from Iowa City, he didn't grow up a Hawkeye fan so may be allured away by another school.

Jack Tabb Red Bank, NJ | NR
Links: Scout, Rivals
Tabb recently picked up an offer from Florida and I think he's really hoping for one from Penn State. I don't think Iowa has a great shot.

Jeff Heuerman Naples, FL | Scout: 3*
Committed to Ohio State.

Brian Miller Andover, MA | Scout: 3*
Committed to Boston College.
