(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Commitments for the Class of 2020 are trickling in slowly, but the Iowa Hawkeyes have done a good job getting out to a very fast start. The latest class rankings indicate that the team is on pace for one of the best classes in the country.Per 247Sports, Iowa’s 2020 recruiting class is currently ranked No. 11 in the country. The team is also ranked No. 3 in the Big Ten behind Ohio State and Michigan.Iowa is certainly aided by a conference-leading eight commitments, which includes the top-four in-state prospects. Among the in-state prospects are four-star defensive tackle Logan Jones, and a trio of three star prospects.At the quarterback position, the Hawkeyes appear to have found their man early with four-star pro-style thrower Deuce Hogan giving his commitment last June.There’s still a lot of time for the big programs across the country to pick up the pace though. Without a swath of four-star prospects and even a five-star, Iowa’s ranking could drop quickly.Nonetheless, Kirk Ferentz clearly has a plan in place for getting Iowa to take that next step in the Big Ten title race.Last year the Hawkeyes went 8-4 in the regular season before upsetting Mississippi State in the Outback Bowl to finish 9-4.[247Sports]
