Iowa adds to 2021 class with late pledge from in-state ATH
There’s another commitment added to Iowa’s 2021 recruiting class.
On Saturday afternoon, the Hawkeyes received a verbal pledge from 6-foot-1, 200-pound athlete Deavin Hilson. He is a native of Des Moines, Iowa and recently received a scholarship offer from head coach Kirk Ferentz. Once the offer was extended from the program, Hilson couldn’t wait to commit.
“I want to thank Coach Ferentz for the SCHOLARSHIP OFFER!!” Hilson wrote on Twitter. “With that I decided to COMMIT to the University of Iowa. This is not only for me but for the whole city of Des Moines.”

Per 247Sports, Hilson ranks as the No. 150 athlete in the 2021 recruiting class and the No. 23 player out of Iowa. He picks the Hawkeyes over in-state foe and FCS squad Northern Iowa.
Iowa has done extremely well with the 2021 recruiting class, currently ranked No. 6 in the B1G and No. 22 nationally. Ferentz has done an excellent job recruiting the state, as Hilson becomes the 11th player within state lines to commit to the program.
The Hawkeyes closed out the 2020 season with a 6-2 record, winning six-straight after an 0-2 start.
