Iowa picks up commitment from 2019 Colorado quarterback
It didn’t take long for Iowa to find its 2019 quarterback.
The Hawkeyes took care of that in the middle of June thanks to the news they got on Thursday.
Three-star 2019 quarterback Alex Padilla gave his verbal pledge to the Hawkeyes.

Padilla is the No. 29 pro-style quarterback and the No. 955 recruit overall in the 2019 class. The Englewood, Col. native is the No. 7 recruit in Colorado.
Iowa gave Padilla his first Power 5 offer earlier in the week. But the 6-1, 190-pound signal-caller could get plenty of Power 5 interest if he doubles down on his 40-touchdown season in 2017.
The Hawkeyes currently have 10 verbal commitments and are now ranked No. 28 in the 247sports class rankings.
