Few players (if any) in the state of Iowa have seen their stock rise like Grant Brix’s has this season. The Class of 2024 Logan-Magnolia High offensive lineman has reported eight Power 5 scholarship offers since Sept. 18.
Iowa became the latest program jumping in with this talented junior when it did so Saturday. The 6-foot-6, 255-pounder was visiting for the Hawkeyes matchup with No. 4 Michigan at Kinnick Stadium.
“I loved the coaching staff. They were all awesome,” Brix told HF about what stood out to him during the stop.
Iowa State, Missouri, Minnesota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Nebraska also offered him full rides during the last several weeks. Kansas State was the first to come forward when it did so in late July.
The Hawkeye offer was well received.
“I was thankful because Iowa is a really solid football program,” Brix said.
He’s a good all-around athlete who also stands out in wrestling and track. The Hawkeyes see that in how he plays offensive line.
“I talked with (Tyler) Barnes, (O-Line) coach (George) Barnett, coach (LeVar) Woods and (Scott) Southmayd during my visit. They said I’ve improved significantly, and I fit their style of lineman,” Brix said.
He sees the program as a contender for his services.
“Iowa could be a good fit because I really enjoyed the atmosphere, and I like what Iowa football values,” he said.
Brix has visited Iowa State three times, and Kansas State twice. He expected to get out to Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Northwestern and Oklahoma sometime this fall.
