John Nester commits to Iowa football


Iowa Football added its seventh known verbal commitment to the recruiting class of 2023 Monday night when Chicago Marist High’s John Nestor announced his intentions on social media.

Rivals ranks Nestor (6-1, 190) a three-star and 24th overall in Illinois on the cycle. He is also reporting state scholarship offers from Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota and Purdue in the Power 5.

The Hawkeyes offered Nestor a scholarship when he visited for a junior day in early March. He spoke with HN after taking the opportunity.

“What I loved most about Iowa was the culture and character of the coaches and players in the program,” he told HN at the time. “It’s really different from anyone else, which I really appreciated.”

Nestor visited Iowa State last weekend. He stopped at Minnesota and Purdue last month and was due in Nebraska on Saturday.

As a junior, Nestor earned all-conference honors. He recorded 63.0 tackles (43.0 solo. 3.5 for loss), 1.0 sacks and four interceptions. He forced three fumbles.

“(Iowa coaches) have said I’m a solid football player who brings versatility and athleticism to the table when it comes to putting me on the field,” Nestor said last month.
