Recruiting: Hawkeyes Add 4-Star Running Back

January 4, 2012

B1G Recruiting, Iowa Football


On the day freshman running back Mika’il McCall officially confirmed he was leaving Iowa, the Hawkeyes got a commitment from a big time running back:

The town of Erie, Pa., has been good to the Iowa football team in terms of producing talented players and the pipeline continued Tuesday with a prized running back from Erie picking the Hawkeyes.

High school senior Greg Garmon, who attends McDowell High School in Erie, made a verbal commitment to Iowa while participating in the Sempler-Fidelis High School All-America Bowl game in Phoenix, Ariz.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Garmon had a long list of scholarship offers, but he picked Iowa over Miami (Fla.) and Arkansas. He is an elusive runner and has been clocked at 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

Garmon is ranked as a four-star recruit by and on a five-star scale.

Garmon is from Bob Sanders’ hometown.
