While the Hawkeyes have not yet offered, they have remained in close contact throughout the recruiting process. The Iowa coaching staff sees the 6-foot-1, 170-pound Hyde developing into a cornerback at the college level. So far, the two-star prospect, who earned first team all-state honors at quarterback this year, likes what he has heard from the Hawkeyes.
