Kedrick Raphael commits to Iowa football


Kendrick Raphael officially visited Iowa Football this past weekend. The experience led to the four-star running back’s verbal commitment on Monday night.

Raphael became the program’s 11th known commitment in the recruiting class of 2023. The Naples (FL) star of 2023 chose Iowa out of 21 reported scholarship offers, including opportunities from NC State, Boston College, Duke, Iowa State, Louisville, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Vanderbilt and West Virginia.

Rivals ranks Raphael (5-10, 190) a four-star prospect, the No. 15 running back nationally in 23 and the No. 50 player overall in Florida for the cycle. 247Sports considers him a three-star, the No. 31 player in his position and the No. 88 rookie overall in the state.

As a junior, Raphael rushed 126 times for 1,374 yards (10.9 yards per carry) and 18 touchdowns.
