Iowa picked up a commitment from a 5-star OT out of the 2023 class on Thursday. Kadyn Proctor from Southeast Polk High School in Des Moines, Iowa decided to stay in-state.

Proctor is listed as a 5-star OT per the 247Sports Composite. He chose the Hawkeyes over Alabama, Georgia, Notre Dame, Penn State, Oregon, and Michigan. Proctor is the No. 2 OT, and the No. 1 recruit from Iowa in the 2023 class. This commitment is Iowa’s 1st 5-star commit. The Hawkeyes now have the No. 15 overall and No. 4 class in the B1G.

Here’s what he had to say about his decision:

“I never thought that I would be in this position that I am today and most know that,” said Proctor. “I’m so thankful for my parents/guardians who have given me advice and shown me perspective throughout my choice. With that being said I would like to further my football and academic career at the University of Iowa! I’m staying home.”
