Hawkeyes land 2016 3-Star ATH/RB Barrington Wade

The Hawkeyes have been trying to climb their way up the Big Ten rankings for recruiting next season, and they have inched one step closer with the commitment of 3-Star ATH/RB Barrington Wade.

Wade, a 6-foot-1 back from Skokie, Illinois, is a player who the Hawkeyes have been trying to land since February.

The 211-pound back runs a 4.50-forty which lacks the appeal of some Division 1 backs, but will certainly not be enough to knock his production at the next level.

Iowa was without a doubt the best offer that Wade received in terms of prestige of schools, but is likely the best fit too. He is a strong runner that will make one move and commit to it, something that is crucial in the Iowa zone-running scheme.
