Eric Simmons accepts offer from Hawkeyes

Iowa Western Community College (Council Bluffs, Ia.) offensive center Eric Simmons received a scholarship offer from Iowa on Thursday and committed to the program shortly after, multiple sources report.

The 6-foot-3, 300-pound prospect was previously only holding offers from Football Championship Subdivision schools including Eastern Kentucky, Northern Iowa, Missouri State and Youngstown State.

Simmons, who has three years of on-field eligibility remaining, is the 18th pledge for Iowa.
