Thursday Morning: Recruiting Tease: Who is Jake Duzey?

Twitter chatter this morning is circulating around Iowa's next football verbal commitment. The rumored name appearing is Jake Duzey, WR, from Troy Michigan. Duzey is a big target at WR. MaxPreps.com's profile for Duzey lists him as 6'5" 210 lbs. Rivals has Duzey at a 4.49 40 time and 33 inch vert.

Here is a highlight from YouTube.



Meanwhile, for Hawkeye news from around the web:

The Iowa City Press Citizen rolls out another article on a not so high profile position. Susan Harmon talks about Iowa Punter Ryan Donahue in Donahue strives for consistent success.

Jon Miller, of HawkeyeNation.com, does a comparison between the 2002 Iowa Hawkeye football team and the 2010 squad. It's only a comparison of the skill positions, RB, WR, TE, and QB, and Miller does admit that there is a difference in Olines. Remember, the 2002 OLine had multiple future NFL draft picks. Other than Reiff, I don't think the same can be said for the 2010 line. Time will tell.

Continuing with the Top 10 list from the Gazette team, two of today's picks are out:

Readers’ No. 7 — 2004 Wisconsin

Mike Hlas: My No. 7 Game in the Ferentz Era: Penn State, 2009

Doc’s No. 7 — 2002 at Michigan

Morehouse: My No. 7 — 2002 Purdue


The Quad-City Times reports that Ricky Stanzi putting in time in film room. If you recall, there was another QB at Iowa that reportedly put in the extra time in the film room too. He soon lost his job to Ricky Stanzi. I guess what I'm sayin' is that it's great he is putting the time in and all, but it doesn't necessarily translate to instant success.

Elsewhere, around the web, Penn State blog LinebackerU asks its readers which team they would like to beat the most, Alabama, Ohio State, or Iowa. I'll let you read the entries.

And finally, The NFL Draft Blog has a Hawkeye in its Top 10 draft prospects for 2011.  Take a wild guess on who it is.
