Spencer Petras flipped his commitment from Oregon State to Iowa on Friday.

Iowa just added another talented recruit to its 2018 class in Spencer Petras.

On Friday morning, 3-star quarterback Spencer Petras changed his commitment from Oregon State to Iowa. Petras initially committed to the Beavers this past May.

"Through diligent thought, council, and prayers," Petras wrote, "I have decided to move my commitment from Oregon St. to the Iowa Hawkeyes."

Here's the post:

Petras, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound senior at Marin Catholic (Calif.) is the No. 19 ranked pro-style quarterback in the nation, per 247 Sports.

Petras also had competing offers from other big-name schools, including Cal, Louisville and Syracuse, but it appears his official this pat weekend to Iowa sealed the deal for him.

“Primarily, I loved Iowa City. It’s a great place. It was much bigger than I expected. It really surpassed my expectations,” Petras told Rob Howe of Hawkeye Nation after his commitment. “Additionally, it was great to meet coach (Kirk) Ferentz and the rest of the staff in person. I had met coach (Ken) O’Keefe before. Also, meeting the players and feeling the atmosphere there was awesome.”

According to Land Of 10, Petras will sign next week and enroll in January.

With Petras' commitment, the Hawkeyes now boast 16 recruits in their 2018 class. According to 247 Sports, with the addition of Petras, the Hawkeyes have the No. 36 ranked recruiting class in the nation.

Petras completed 64 percent of his passes this past season, throwing for 4,157 yards and 50 touchdowns with just two interceptions.
