Larry Tracy announced Sunday night that he was de-committing from Iowa. It wasn’t a decision taken lightly.

The 2019 cornerback from Indianapolis Decatur Central feels a strong connection with the Hawkeyes. His cousin and high school teammate, Tyrone Tracy, is heading to Iowa as part of the ’18 class. There are plenty of good reasons to stay committed.

Some doubt crept in, however, a wonderment if he acted too fast. Tracy pledged to Iowa very early in his process, before he had the chance to really compare it to anything else.

“I still love Iowa,” he told HN. “It’s great place and I’m still high on them and they’re the top school in my recruitment. This decision is to give myself more time to be 100 percent comfortable with my decision. I still have a great relationship with the staff and coach (Kelvin) Bell.”

Larry (5-11, 175) committed to Iowa in July, a few months after Tyrone jumped in with the Hawkeyes. The difference was that the older cousin was a year ahead in the recruiting process.

Tyrone supported Larry’s decision to de-commit.

Tracy said he planned to be at Iowa’s junior day on Feb. 17. He has not set up any other visits yet.

Iowa, Purdue, Cincinnati, Minnesota, Syracuse, Indiana and Louisville are the other schools Tracy is considering at this point. He picked up offers from the Boilermakers and Gophers earlier this month.

Rivals and 247 rank Tracy as a three-star prospect. Both services place him among the Top 10 players in the state for ’19 and the Top 50 cornerbacks nationally.
