Hawkeye Football Offers Tyrone Burrus Jr.
'25 Indy Edge Talks Iowa
Tyrone Burrus Jr. visited Iowa last month. The 2025 Indianapolis Warren Central edge learned about the Hawkeyes and saw what the program had to offer. He connected with defensive line coach Kelvin Bell.
Iowa was part of a flurry of scholarship offers Burrus Jr. announced on Thursday. It joined Iowa State, Purdue, West Virginia, Ball State and Central Michigan in extending opportunities.
“I found out Iowa was offering when coach Bell told me,” Burrus Jr. told HF.
Bell expressed to him why the Hawkeyes felt he would be a good fit with them.
“I give out what most players won’t,” he said.
Indiana, Toledo, Western Michigan and Miami (OH) also have reportedly offered the sophomore. Iowa has made a good impression and positioned itself well in his recruitment.
“I liked the coaches and weight room,” he said of his visit.
247Sports ranks Burrus Jr. (6-4, 215) as the No. 30 edge nationally in the ’25 and the No. 4 player overall in Indiana.
Burrus Jr. delivered 3.0 sacks, 6.5 tackles for loss and 18 quarterback hurries as a sophomore last season, according to MaxPreps.com. He also blocked a kick and recovered two fumbles.
Burrus Jr. plans to visit Iowa again next month. He feels like he has a good handle on the Hawkeyes.
“Coach Bell answers all my questions,” he said.
Asked what other visits he’ll take this summer, Burrus said, “I have no other place in mind.”
