Just a week after visiting Iowa City, Class of 2019 prospect Kobe Myers picked up a scholarship offer from the Hawkeyes. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Michigan native was excited to receive the news from Iowa recruiting coordinator Kelvin Bell on Wednesday.
“When I received the Iowa offer, I was very humbled and excited,” said Myers. “I found out from Coach Bell over the phone. We talked for a little bit and at the end of our conversation he let me know that they were offering me.”
“I was so shocked that I struggled to even find words, but I was very humbled and blessed to receive the offer,” Myers said.
Listed as an athlete, Myers plays all over the field in high school at Walled Lake Western. In college, he could project at wide receiver, defensive back, or linebacker, which is where the Hawkeyes feel he will eventually end up most likely.
Overall, Iowa is the fourth offer for the Class of 2019 recruit as the Hawkeyes join Syracuse, Ohio, and Central Michigan on his list. Other schools showing interest include Michigan State, Wisconsin, Cincinnati, and Northern Illinois.
As for Iowa, the Hawkeyes have already made a good impression on Myers after his visit to watch Iowa’s 45-16 win over Illinois on Homecoming this past Saturday.
“It was a great experience,” said Myers. “I got to see a great game and meet some amazing coaches and support staff.”
“What really stood out to me about Iowa was that their fan base was awesome,” he continued. “The coaching staff was positive and energetic and spoke from the heart, and their facilities were some of the best I have seen so far.”
