3-Star DT Noah Shannon Commits To Iowa Weeks After Minnesota Decommitment

Noah Shannon will be playing in the Big Ten West, but not for the team to which he originally committed.

The Oswego, Illinois native is ranked No. 605 in the class of 2018. 247Sports also ranks him No. 43 among defensive tackles and No. 10 in the state of Illinois.

Back on May 28, Shannon decommitted from the Minnesota Golden Gopher, a few weeks after pledging to P.J. Fleck's program.

Now, he'll be an Iowa Hawkeye.

He made the announcement via Twitter.

His full note:

"These past few weeks I've thought long and hard about where I'll be attending college and playing football for the next four years. I'd like to personally thank all the programs that took their time to recruit me and offer me the opportunity to play the game I love. After any conversations with my parents and family, I have finally decided to further my academic and football career at the University of Iowa. #SWARM18"

Shannon is now the top-ranked player in Iowa's 10-man class, which is ranked No. 56 nationally and No. 12 in the Big Ten.

He also holds offers from Arkansas, Duke, Indiana, Kansas State, Michigan State, Missouri, Syracuse, and others.
