It didn’t take long for 2023 athlete Zach Lutmer to make a decision. After receiving his first FBS and Power Five offer from Iowa, Lutmer took all of one day to announce his commitment to the Hawkeyes.
“Excited to announce that I am committed to play football at the University of Iowa! This would not be possible without the support from my family, coaches and community! #GOHAWKS,” Lutmer wrote in his Twitter announcement.
Meanwhile, 247Sports lists Lutmer as an athlete. 247Sports is the only recruiting service that currently has a star ranking for Lutmer. According to 247Sports, Lutmer is a three-star recruit, the nation’s No. 147 athlete and the 17th-best player from Iowa in the 2023 class.
He also held offers from South Dakota and South Dakota State and was drawing interest from both Iowa State and Minnesota. Last season at Central Lyon High School, Lutmer registered 1,016 passing yards, 1,246 rushing yards and 30 touchdowns on offense and 46.5 tackles and four interceptions on defense.
Lutmer becomes Iowa’s eighth commit overall in the 2023 class and joins Marion High School athlete Alex Mota, Iowa City High School linebacker Ben Kueter and Norwalk High School defensive lineman Maddux Borcherding-Johnson as in-state products that have pledged commitments to the Hawkeyes.
Iowa’s other commitments include Hun School quarterback Marco Lainez III out of New Jersey, Cherry Creek High School EDGE Chase Brackney out of Colorado, Brownsburg High School offensive lineman Leighton Jones out of Indiana and Marist High School defensive back John Nestor out of Illinois.
Here’s a look at Lutmer’s junior season Hudl highlights and his commitment profile.
