Kamari Moulton made the long trip from his Florida home to Iowa this past weekend. He’s was glad that he did.
The Fort Lauderdale (FL) Cardinal Gibbons running back recently received a Hawkeye scholarship offer. Getting an up-close look at the program on an official visit was important to him.
He liked what he saw.
“What I love most about Iowa is that they push their education,” Moulton told HF. “It’s very important for them. It’s more than just football. They want us to succeed after football is over.”
Strong team chemistry also stood out to Moulton (5-9, 180).
“They’ve got a brotherhood and everyone is family,” he said.
Moulton spent time with most of the Hawkeye staff. He enjoyed his conversations with running back coach Ladell Betts and head coach Kirk Ferentz.
“They were just telling me how I can fit in the program and how much you got to work. And if everything works out, there’s at least a chance that I can get a shot at the league,” he said.
Still a Florida Atlantic verbal commitment, Iowa gave Moulton something to consider after he saw campus.
“I’m feeling good about the visit. I had fun and definitely will be in contact,” he said.
According to MaxPreps.com. Moulton rushed 156 times for 1,075 yards and 18 touchdowns as a junior last fall. This season, he’s carried the ball 90 times for 502 yards and four scores, and has added 33 catches for 402 yards.
Moulton reports scholarship offers from Syracuse, Akron, Appalachian State, Buffalo, Central Michigan, UConn and Toledo, among others. Rivals and 247Sports rank him as a three-start prospect, the latter viewing him as the No. 69 running back nationally for 2023.
