Iowa football is not typically a recruiting powerhouse. Kirk Ferentz and his staff have brought in some solid talent in recent years.

Last year's class ranked No. 39 in the country, and No. 8 in the Big Ten. Things could be on a bit of an uptick from there.

Iowa football has 16 players committed in next year's recruiting class, as of today.

After last year's class did not have any blue chip players, three are committed to head to Iowa next season.

Ezra Miller and Tyler Endres, a pair of offensive tackles, are ranked Nos. 24 and 31 at their position, respectively. Both are pledged to the Hawkeyes. They're joined by four-star outside linebacker Jestin Jacobs, out of Ohio.

Among the other notable commits is quarterback Alex Padilla, a pro-style Colorado native ranked No. 33 in the country.

As a group, the 2019 Hawkeyes are ranked No. 34 in the country, and No. 8 in the Big Ten, via 247Sports.

Iowa's class of 2020 is off to a fast start as well, and also features an early quarterback commit.

Grapvine, Texas native Deuce Hogan gave his commitment to Iowa back in June. He is a four-star pro-style quarterback, ranked No. 13 at his position in the class.

He's joined by a pair of three-star defensive ends, Michael Lois and Isaiah Bruce. Both committed this fall. The class is ranked No. 20 overall and fourth in the Big Ten early in the cycle.
