Iowa adds commitment from in-state OL to 2022 class
Iowa has added a second in-state commitment to its 2022 recruiting class. The announcement was made on Tuesday via Twitter.
Kale Krogh, a 6-foot-6, 265-pound offensive tackle out of Huxley, Iowa, became the fifth player in the class to commit to the Hawkeyes. He picked the Hawkeyes over offers from more than a dozen other programs on the recruiting trail.
“Most of all I would like to thank my family, my mom for doing everything and anything I could ever ask for, my dad for teaching me how to work hard and do things right the first time, my brothers for teaching me how to enjoy life and being biggest fans,” Krogh said on Twitter. “With that said, I will be furthering my academic and athletic career at the University of Iowa to play football! GO HAWKS!”

Krogh’s decision comes a few days after receiving an offer from Iowa. He is expected to take a visit to campus later this month, scheduled for June 25, according to 247Sports.
Currently, Krogh does not have any composite rankings from 247Sports. However, from the site’s own rankings, the offensive tackle is listed as a 3-star prospect and the No. 7 player from Iowa. He’s also considered one of the Top 75 players at his position for the class.
Other schools to offer Krogh include Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan, Minnesota, Miami (OH), Northern Illinois, Toledo and Tulane at the FBS level. Columbia, Dartmouth, Harvard, Northern Iowa, Penn and Yale extended offers from the FCS ranks.
With Krogh’s pledge, Iowa is up to five verbal commitments in the 2022 class. The Hawkeyes rank No. 53 nationally and No. 12 in the B1G.
