Iowa picked up its 11th known verbal commitment in the 2018 recruiting class Wednesday when Indiana tight end Anthony Torres announced his pledge on social media. He visited the Hawkeyes during the day.

“After long and careful thought and consideration with my family, mentors, coaches and friends, I am more than excited to announce that I’m committed to the University of Iowa,” Torres wrote in his post.

Torres (6-6, 238) is a big bodied tight end who runs well and shows good hands. He’s a willing and capable blocker. He’ll play his upcoming senior season at the IMG Academy in Florida after transferring from Mishawaka (IN) Penn High.

The Hawkeyes offered Torres a scholarship after he camped at the school in early June. He spoke with HN about that experience.

Torres chose the Hawkeyes ahead of offers from home-state Indiana, Central Florida, and many of the MAC and Ivy League schools.
