New Trier junior four star-ranked offensive tackle recruit David Davidkov (6-foot-6, 290 pounds) made his college decision Sunday night, giving the University of Iowa his verbal commitment.
"Ever since my sophomore year I've built up an amazing relationship with the Iowa staff," Davidkov said. "Iowa has always felt like home to me and they really have been my favorite school and it's the right place for me. I decided over the last few days I was ready to make my decision so I committed to Iowa."
Davidkov, who admitted that his final favorite schools list came down to Iowa, Michigan and Ohio State, discussed what set the Hawkeyes apart.
"Iowa just feels like the right place for me. I can relate really well with the players and the students at Iowa. The players at Iowa are humble and hard working and I just could not pass up such an amazing opportunity to play for the Hawkeyes. I feel that the coaches at Iowa can develop my potential to the best of my ability and Iowa has such a great tradition of developing great offensive linemen. I also know I'll get a great education at Iowa and everything just feels right to me about my decision."
Davidkov is the 12th known verbal commitment for Iowa in its 2021 recruiting class and the second pledge from the Land of Lincoln, joining Lena-Winslow’s three star-ranked OL Jennings Dunker. Davidkov is also the 190th-best recruit in the nation according to the latest Rivals.com Rivals250 national recruit rankings for the Class of 2021.
