IOWA CITY, Iowa – Iowa returns home for the first time in three weeks. With it, the Hawkeyes will welcome a large group of recruits to Kinnick Stadium on Saturday when they play host to Northwestern.

Five of Iowa’s 16 verbal commitments in the 2019 class are planning on being in town. They are Jack Campbell, Tyler Endres, Jalen Hunt, Josiah Miamen and Ezra Miller.

A pair of ’20 targets with offers headline the list of non-committed prospects. They’re teammates from Michigan.

Kentwood East High offensive lineman Dallas Fincher and Bryce Mostella, a defensive lineman, return to Iowa City after visiting for the recruiting tailgate in late July. Mostella is a four-star prospect with offers from Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and many others. Fincher is seen as a three-star and boasts opportunities from Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and quite a few others.

Mostella told HN after the recruiting tailgate that the Hawkeyes were in his Top 5. Fincher’s father, Mark Fincher, played at Michigan State with standout running back Lorenzo White.

Omaha Elkhorn South High sophomore Teddy Prochazka is an interesting prospect. The young offensive tackle is 6-8, 250 pounds and holds a Nebraska offer. He could pick one up from the Hawkeyes this weekend.

There seems to be a good connection between Iowa and St. Louis DeSmet Jesuit linebacker Lanell Carr, who has visited already this season. The junior reports offers from Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Syracuse and others. He might land one from Iowa during this stop.

Senior Zane Heemsoth is a name on which to keep an eye. The Elmhurst (IL) York linebacker comes back to town after a September stop and being visited in person by Hawkeye assistant Seth Wallace during the bye week.

Senior punter Gavin Mottl hails from Chicago St. Rita. That’s the alma mater of Ryan Donahue, who was pretty good at that position for Iowa.

Cedar Rapids Prairie will send a pair of intriguing prospects back to Kinnick Stadium this weekend. Senior running back Keegan Simmons and Jace Andregg, a junior receiver, are frequent visitors this fall.

Simmons (6-2, 205) rushed for 2,025 yards and 25 touchdowns this fall. He averaged 7.2 yards per carry. Andregg battled injuries this season but stood out during a Nike scouting combine in the spring, which included a 40.1-inch vertical leap.

Here’s the full list of prospects expected at Kinnick Stadium (others could be added):

Jace Andregg, ’20, WR, Cedar Rapids Prairie

Adam Bock, ’19, LB, Solon
