Iowa continues to add depth to the wide receiver position.
Sunday, Quavon Matthews, a 5-foot-11 receiver out of Largo, Florida, gave his verbal pledge to Iowa, becoming the 13th player in the class to join the Hawkeyes class. His announcement comes a few days after Iowa announced it added three wide receivers to the roster from the transfer market.
Matthews is currently the only wide receiver committed to Iowa out of high school. He does not have any ratings from 247Sports at this time.
“I would like to thank my mom, dad, family, teammates, and anyone else that has helped me get to this step in my life. You all have loved and positively influenced my life and I can’t thank you enough for it,” Matthews wrote. “With that being said I would like to announce my commitment to the University of Iowa!”
The Hawkeyes have done a good job on the recruiting trail through this point in the year, owning the 22nd ranked class nationally and the fourth-best in the B1G.
The addition of Matthews provides Iowa with reinforcements at the receiver position. Last week, the program announced that three transfer receivers would be joining the roster — Oliver Martin (Michigan), Jack Combs (Central Michigan) and Charlie Jones (Buffalo). All three will have to sit out the 2019 before being eligible.
Matthews is the first player from the state of Florida to commit to Iowa’s 2020 class.
