Petras, Nixon highlight Iowa recruiting class

IOWA CITY (AP) — Iowa signed 15 players to letters of intent on Wednesday, a class headlined by four-star quarterback Spencer Petras and junior college defensive lineman Daviyon Nixon.

The 6-foot-5 Petras, of Greenbrae, California, broke school records for yards and touchdowns previously held by current Los Angeles Rams starter Jared Goff. Nixon turned down Alabama to sign with Iowa after a season at Iowa Western.

The Hawkeyes also brought in four-star defensive end John Waggoner from Dowling Catholic and linebacker Dillon Doyle, the son of Iowa strength coach Chris Doyle.

The Hawkeyes (7-5) close out 2017 against Boston College (7-5) in the Pinstripe Bowl on Dec. 27 at Yankee Stadium.
