Deuce Hogan toured campuses during the last month, hoping that feeling hit him. Tulsa, Oklahoma State, Iowa State, Iowa and Baylor tried to provide it for him.

While they all put their best foot forward, the Hawkeyes won him over. The Class of ’20 quarterback announced Friday evening he was verbally committing to them.

Hogan (6-4, 190) stopped at Iowa on June 1 and spoke with HN about the visit. He really connected with quarterback coach Ken O’Keefe and current starting signal caller Nate Stanley.

In addition to the schools he recently visited, Boston College, Colorado, Houston, Syracuse and others had offered him. He’d been hearing from Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, LSU, Ole Miss, Wisconsin and Michigan State.

Rivals and 247 both ranked Hogan as a three-star recruit. Rivals sees the Grapevine (TX) Faith Christian product as the No. 17 pro-style quarterback nationally in ’18, while 247 has him at No. 15.

As a sophomore, Hogan completed 219 of 372 passes (58.8 percent) for 2,716 yards and 29 touchdowns against 12 interceptions, according to 247.

Hogan is Iowa’s first verbal commitment in the ’20 class. These are players heading into their junior years that can first sign letters of intent with colleges during December of next year.
