You win some battles on the recruiting trail and you lose some battles. And sometimes you end up losing the battle after you think you won it -- that happened back in September when 4* Florida RB recruit Kendrick Raphael decommitted from Iowa. He was one of the most high profile members of Iowa's 2023 recruiting class, so it was definitely a departure that stung. Last night Iowa picked up another RB from Florida to help ease that sting: 

Kamari "Hulk" Moulton was previously committed to Florida Atlantic, but decommitted from the Owls in order to give his verbal commitment to Iowa. Like I said: you win some, you lose some. Moulton is listed at 5'11", 190 lbs and is ranked a 3* prospect by both Rivals and 247 Sports. In addition to Florida Atlantic, Moulton also had offers from Syracuse, UConn, Appalachian State, FIU, Buffao, Central Michigan, Akron, Toledo, and a host of FCS schools. As a junior, Moulton ran for 18 touchdowns and 1075 yards.

But Moulton wasn't the only recruiting win for Iowa last night. They also added a player who might help open holes for him when they're both in Iowa uniforms: 

Like Moulton, Kade Pieper decommitted from another program -- North Dakota State, in this case -- to join Iowa. Eat it, Bizon. Pieper, a Nebraska native, is listed at 6'4", 235 lbs and is rated a 2* prospect by Rivals. (247 Sports has not yet ranked him.) He chose Iowa over offers from NDSU, as well as offers from North Dakota and South Dakota. Suck it, Dakotas. Pieper was played offense and defense in high school, but he's projected for offensive guard in college. Obviously at 235-250 lbs, he'll need to spend considerable time in the weight room before he's ready to contribute at the Big Ten level. He's definitely one to file away for the future.

Welcome to Iowa, Kamari and Kade. We're excited to see what you can do at Iowa in a few years.
