Iowa offers twin sons of former Nebraska Cornhusker, West Lyon great in 2026 class

The Iowa Hawkeyes didn’t wait to offer a pair in the 2026 class. Having just completed their freshmen seasons several months back, Iowa went ahead and extended offers to twins Case and Bastian Vanden Bosch out of Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix, Ariz.

Case is a 6-foot-2, 180 pound quarterback. Meanwhile, Bastian is a 6-foot-1, 185 pound athlete.

In addition to the offer from Iowa, Bastian now has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boston College, Nebraska and Oregon. For Case, he also holds offers from Arizona State and Nebraska.

While it’s early in the pair’s recruitment, there might be an obvious favorite to beat. Case and Bastian are the twin sons of former Nebraska Cornhuskers great Kyle Vanden Bosch. Kyle Vanden Bosch was a first-team All-Big 12 selection by Sporting News with the Huskers in the 2000 season. During that 2000 season, Kyle Vanden Bosch registered 56 tackles, 17 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks.

After Nebraska, Kyle Vanden Bosch was selected in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft with pick No. 34 by the Arizona Cardinals. He went on to be a three-time Pro Bowl defensive end with the Tennessee Titans during his 12-year NFL career.

Of course, Iowa has a nice little tie to the family as well. Kyle Vanden Bosch was teammates with current Hawkeye special teams coordinator LeVar Woods at West Lyon High School in Iowa.

It will be fun to watch the duo’s development in the years ahead and how their recruitment unfolds. LeVar Woods and Iowa made sure the pair knows early in their recruitments that they are a priority with their respective offers.


Here’s a look at Case’s freshman Hudl tape. Plus, their recruiting profiles are below.
