IOWA CITY, Iowa – When Kai Black decided to pursue college football, playing at Iowa became one of his goals.
Now, the 2023 receiver prospect has the opportunity to do just that after receiving a scholarship offer from the Hawkeyes during a recent visit.
“It was crazy,” Black said. “Iowa is the target school for a lot of people, including myself. It’s like seeing your dreams become a reality.
“From a young age, I wasn’t all that into college football. But when I started to dedicate myself to playing football it definitely became a goal of mine to be recruited by Iowa.”
The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Black said he has been impressed the most by Iowa’s strength and conditioning program.
The Urbandale native was teammates with current Hawkeyes Max Llewellyn and Jaden Harrell, who were both in Iowa’s 2021 recruiting class.
“I talked to Max on the day of the offer and he said it was great,” Black said. “He loves it up there so far.”
Black also has a scholarship offer from Iowa State.
Black said he is visiting Wisconsin on Sunday and will also make unofficial visits to Nebraska, Iowa and Iowa State soon.
Iowa does not currently have any players committed to its 2023 recruiting class.
