IOWA CITY, Iowa – Jeremiah McClellan must have impressed the Iowa football coaching staff.
The Hawkeyes extended the 2024 receiver a scholarship offer on Friday after a camp in Lindenwood, Ill.
McClellan is believed to be the third player from the 2024 class to have received an offer from Iowa, according to Rivals.com.
“It feels like a dream come true,” McClellan said. “I’m excited for the opportunity.”
McClellan, a native of St. Louis, Mo., also has offers from Arizona State, Michigan State, Minnesota and Miami (Ohio).
The 6-foot-1, 186-pound McClellan said former men’s basketball player and fellow St. Louis native Tyler Cook’s success as a Hawkeye is one thing that stands out to him about Iowa.
McClellan has known Cook from a young age because his brother played football with Cook.
Cook, now a member of the Detroit Pistons, was a second-team All-Big Ten selection after the 2018-19 season before foregoing his final year of eligibility to go pro.
McClellan said he would like to take an unofficial visit to Iowa in the coming weeks.
