I don’t think it’s so much that as it is their linemen get overshadowed by their WR, DL and QB draftees.I’ve never understood why Alabama never seems to get their linemen to the highest level when it comes to being NFL ready. They have all the best resources, facilities, and raw materials (players), but so often you hear that they lack in some fundamentals. They start with the top line recruits, but they tend to need more development once drafted.
I think it’s a token gesture of kindness to his home state. Zero chance that guy goes to Iowa.
For the record I’ll gladly eat ten pounds of crow.
And remember, Iowa does zilch for NIL and our AD has come out publicly and said he wants to try and stop it.
Well if we have any shot at all this would be the reason, plus our history with linemen helps.It is a lot closer than you think. He and Nwampa are pretty tight which is a factor in this as well as Wirf’s influence.
I think Iowa has a good shot to get him.

Having said all of that, the question is this; Do you want to attend college with you best friend or play for National Titles? I hope Fryowa is wrong but likely he is right.
FWIW I am a SEP alum and know a few guys that played with them who have echoed this. No uncle intel though (sorry folks). As an aside it's pretty impressive what Coach Zelenovich has built there. That coaching staff was pretty awful when I played.I think he will be a Hawk and it will be because of Wirf and Nwampa.
Alabama boosters pay volumesYou all need to remember that Iowa wasn’t technically going to receive an official visit partly because he’s been to Iowa unofficially so many times. The fact that he canceled his other visits to set up an official visit to Iowa speaks volumes.
That is true, too. And that’s also why I don’t get wrapped up in college football anymore. Alabama and Ohio State SHOULD win almost all the time with those payrolls compared to Iowa and if they don’t, then the organization is mismanaged and coaching personnel need to be reevaluated immediately. What little parody there was will be even less now. Hell, Iowa cannot even hold onto some of their quality players and losing them to the likes of Purdue. Lol.Alabama boosters pay volumes
