News: The first public signee of Iowa Football’s big official visiting weekend is on the board as four-star offensive player Roncalli of Indianapolis, Ind Trevor Lauck announced his commitment to the Hawkeyes on Sunday night.
Lauck chose Iowa over Michigan State, while Indiana, Purdue and Cincinnati were among the schools on his top list. Ohio State also offered him at one point in the process.

Iowa offensive line coach Goerge Barnett played an important role in Lauck’s recruitment. Barnett was one of the coaches with whom Lauck formed the closest bond, and his recruitment of Lauck played a large part in his involvement with the Hawkeyes.
“I’ve always been a fan of watching Iowa play,” Lauck previously said of Iowa. “It has something to do with their physicality and their tenacity. The consistency the program has in Iowa is really good for recruiting these days. When recruiting, sometimes you don’t know what’s real and what’s not, but with Iowa, you know what you’re getting.”
Lauck is Iowa’s third offensive line commitment in the 2023 class, alongside the three-star center Leighton-Jones and offensive tackle Cannon Leonard.
Lauck is the 13th commit in Iowa’s 2023 class, along with Jones, Leonard, three-star quarterback Marco Lainez, three-star defensemen David Caulker, Maddux Borcherding-Johnson, Chase Brackney, four-star running back Kendrick Raphael and three-star wide receiver Alex Mota, three-star defensemen Zach Lutmer and John Nestor, three-star linebackers Ben Kueter and Aidan Hall.
Analysis: “Trevor comes from a really good high school program and was part of a very good line. He was a leader on that line. He’s tall, physical, and athletic enough to get to his blocks. He’s had some good offers from the Midwest so it’s a nice win for the Hawkeyes.”
What it means: Iowa has now signed three offensive lineman in the 2023 class, and the Hawkeyes are looking for more as they’re in a really good place with a handful of top targets, including Southeast Polk’s five-star offensive lineman Kadyn Proctor , Glen Ellyn (Illinois) Glenbard West three-star Christopher Terek and The Hun School of Princeton (NJ) three-star offensive lineman Logan Howland. All of those prospects joined Lauck in Iowa City for an official visit last weekend, and word on the street was that the bond was strong. If Iowa can land the other uncommitted offensive line targets on the board, this class has a chance to compete with the 2021 offensive line class.
According to the 247Sports Composite, Lauck is listed nationally as the No. 33 offensive tackle in the Class of 2023.
