Iowa Football Recruiting: Illinois Offers Ryan Izzo


2014 tight end Ryan Izzo received an offer from the Illinois Fighting Illini on May 17th. Izzo was one of two TEs that Tim Beckman offered at on Friday (the other was Cole Cook).

Izzo has received offers from the Iowa Hawkeyes, Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Virginia Tech Hokies, Boston College Eagles, Illinois Fighting Illini, Indiana Hoosiers, Michigan State Spartans, Northern Illinois Huskies, Massachusetts Minutemen, South Florida Bulls, Temple Owls, and Tulane Green Wave.

It seems that Izzo is most interested in Iowa, Rutgers, and Virginia Tech. Out of all his offers, the 247 Sports Crystal Ball currently has the Hokies as a 100% predicted spot to land the 2014 recruit.

According to his skills on 247 Sports, Izzo’s best ones are his frame, hands, catch radius, and route running. Izzo is a better receiving TE rather than a blocking tight end.

Izzo’s lowest rating on 247 Sports’ skills chart is his point of attack. The young New Jersey recruit is a good blocker, but he is a better receiver than a blocker.

The three-star recruit is currently ranked 21st in the state of New Jersey and 31st among tight ends by 247Sports.
