Iowa Lands Boyle

Iowa Lands Boyle

Reports on social media Wednesday night indicated that West Des Moines Dowling quarterback Ryan Boyle verbally committed to the Iowa Hawkeyes.

UPDATE: West Des Moines Dowling Coach Tom Wilson confirmed in a text to Hawkeye Insider that Ryan Boyle had verbally committed to Iowa. Wilson said his junior quarterback was out with his family celebrating his pledge and would be returning interview requests in time.

According to a Tweet by an in-state verbal commitment, Iowa picked up another pledge in the Class of 2015 on Wednesday.

Boyle earned first-team all-state honors as quarterback after leading West Des Moines Dowling to the Class 4A state title in the fall. He joined fellow signal callers, Jack Beneventi and Drew Cook, in the Hawkeyes '15 Class.

Beneventi seemed OK with it:

Scout.com ranks Boyle as the 45th-ranked QB nationally in '15. Beneventi comes in at 28.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Boyle completed 119 of 187 passes for 1,833 yards and 21 touchdowns against three interceptions this fall. He rushed for 1,332 yards and 24 scores after tearing his ACL during the '12 season.

Boyle also reported scholarship offers from Western Michigan, Illinois State and Montana State.

Boyle is believed to be the sixth verbal commitment in Iowa's '15 class. All of them but Beneventi (Illinois) are from in-state.
