Jayden McDonald

Other Offers: Kansas State, Ole Miss, Purdue, Rutgers, Cincinnati, CSU, FAU, 4 more.

It would be an abuse of the word literally to say that "McDonald literally just committed to Iowa" but it was only a few days ago, so we'll refer you to his original CIC piece. Since his verbal/LOI he has drawn comparisons to Christian Kirksey and been called a freak athlete. Here's the visual proof:

Again, we're talking about a kid from the Georgia class 7A high school state champion. With his speed and physicality, I'm thinking he was under-recruited and Iowa got a steal with his LOI. There's a strong possibility we could see him on the field this fall.
