In late December, many of the top high school football players in Iowa signed on the dotted line during the early signing day for college football.

However, others opted to wait out their choices and commit during the official National Signing Day, which took place Wednesday. 

Below is a list of Iowa FBS, FCS and a select other players who signed. If we missed anyone, please email

WR - Curtis Horras, West Des Moines Dowling

Horras was one of the leading receivers for the Maroons this past fall, catching 32 passes for 390 yards with three touchdowns. He formed a talented duo with Hank Brown, who also found his next home.
