Titus Cram knows his way around the Iowa Football Complex after visiting the program for three games last season, bowl practice in December, junior day in March and the open spring practice on April. Even with that history, he stopped to see the Hawkeyes again in late June.
“The purpose of me going on that visit was because I wasn’t able to participate in the camp. So it was set up so that I could see the academic part of Iowa and how it would look if I went there,” the Class of 2024 Bondurant-Farrar (IA) High standout said.
Cram (6-0, 195) reports scholarship offers from Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and Wisconsin. Florida State and others are showing him interest.
Rivals ranks him as a three-star prospect and the No. 2 junior in the state for ’24. The rest of the service’s Top 5 in the class – Cody Fox, Derek Weisskopf, Preston Ries and Cam Buffington – all are verbally committed to Iowa.
Cram doesn’t feel like he’s close to deciding on a school. He’s still trying to get a feel for the schools and find the best fit for him.
“In my opinion, I don’t think that my recruiting has hit its peak yet. I think that there is way more to come this fall,” he said.
That’s good and bad news for Cram, who, despite being grateful for the position he’s in, has felt stressed by the recruiting process.
“It was good at first, but, honestly, it gets kind of overwhelming sometimes, especially when different teams want you to go to their places at the same time. Me as a pleaser, it puts a lot of stress on me. I really appreciate my coach, Zach Pfantz. He makes it way easier for me to manage,” Cram said.
Rivals lists him as an Athlete as schools can see him fitting in at multiple positions on the college level. He prefers running back.
Cram rushed for 1,461 yards (7.6 per carry) and 26 touchdowns as a sophomore. He caught eight passes for 262 yards and two more scores. He totaled 43.0 tackles (33.0 solo) on defense.
The Hawkeyes have built a strong bond with Cram. Assistant Jay Niemann has led the way.
“I feel that they’re a very solid program that will benefit me on and off the field. I enjoy all the coaches and the staff that work with me,” Cram said.
Iowa State, Missouri, Nebraska, Minnesota and Wisconsin all have played host to him on visits. He saw the Badgers for the first time in June.
“It was a very nice school. It was by the lakes, which made it beautiful. The coaches and the staff were super nice. The way they talked about how I would fit in their offense made a lot of sense. It fits the style that I play,” Cram said.
