Taylor Flips to Iowa from Georgia Tech
Hawkeye Junior Day Reaction
Iowa picked up a verbal commitment from in-state on Sunday morning when Waukee offensive lineman Ross Reynolds announced on Twitter that he was a Hawkeye.
Reynolds confirmed with Hawkeye Insider earlier this week that at minimum Iowa was offering him a gray-shirt opportunity. The coaches had told him that it could grow into a standard scholarship, which could happen anytime before fall camps started.
HI still is trying to reach Reynolds Sunday morning to find out if his commitment was to a grayshirt or regular ride. We will update the story when we contact the 6-foot-4, 275-pound lineman.
Also reported Sunday morning by HI was the apparent commitment of Gonzaga College defensive back Miles Taylor, who officially visited Iowa this weekend. The 6-foot, 175-pounder was previously committed to Georgia Tech.
HI, along with Scout.com's Brian Dohn and Rachel Klein, have reached out to Taylor. He told Klein that he was flying back to D.C. Sunday and would contact here when he landed.
The commitments of Reynolds and Taylor would push Iowa's known verbal total to 21 members for the Class of 2014. Hawkeye Coach Kirk Ferentz said throughout the season that he felt the group would top out at about 20 athletes. If Reynolds were to get a grayshirt, that would not count against the number.
High school seniors can begin signing binding national letters of intent with colleges on Feb. 5. Coaches cannot speak about prospects until that happens.
