Four-star RB Eno Benjamin de-commits from Iowa
Iowa’s weekend went from bad to worse.
After the Hawkeyes fell to Wisconsin and all but eliminated themselves from the B1G West title picture, they lost a key 2017 commitment.
Four-star Texas tailback Eno Benjamin announced that he opened up his commitment.
I am officially opening up my recruitment!
Thank you & God Bless???????? pic.twitter.com/Q3qILK12ni

That’s a huge loss for an Iowa class that was ranked No. 4 in the B1G and No. 18 in the country. Benjamin is the No. 10 tailback in the country and the No. 159 player overall.
The U.S. Army All-American had been committed to Iowa since April and played an integral role in bringing on other Texas recruits like four-star cornerback Chevin Calloway.
According to 247sports, Benjamin reportedly has interest in Michigan, Arizona State and Mizzou.
It’s unknown what exactly it was that led to Benjamin’s de-commitment and it remains to be seen what it means for Iowa’s other 2017 Texas recruits.
