Mason Richman, a 2020 offensive tackle, has been garnering offers from across the Midwest, as well as several power five schools. This week he revealed where he intends to take his talents.

On Wednesday, Richman announced on Twitter that he would be committing to Iowa. The announcement comes less than a week after he made an official visit to the Hawkeyes.


247Sports rates Richman as a three-star prospect and the No. 632 overall prospect in the country. He is the No. 55 offensive tackle in the country, and the No. 5 prospect from the state of Kansas.

Richman turned down offers from Kansas, Air Force and Northern Illinois in choosing Iowa.

The addition of Richman gives the Hawkeyes 11 recruits to their Class of 2020, tying them with the Northwestern Wildcats for the most in the Big Ten.

247Sports currently ranks the Hawkeyes as the No. 4 recruiting class in the conference - ahead of Nebraska and Michigan State. They are also No. 21 in the nation, ahead of the likes of Auburn, Texas, and Stanford.

Iowa is certainly doing a solid job of recruiting. But they still need to get their off-field success to translate into more consistent on-field performance against their Big Ten division rivals in order to get back to the Big Ten Championship Game.
