Iowa Football Recruiting: Hawkeyes Land Florida RB Kamari Moulton

0

After things cooled off after the summer recruiting surge with the coaching staff focusing on the season, things are heating up again on the recruiting track for the Iowa Hawkeye. That came with several visits and other reviews during the October bye week, but it also came with nearly two dozen visitors to Iowa City for last weekend’s win over Northwestern.

One of those visitors was Kamari Moulton, originally from Fort Lauderdale. A Florida Atlantic commitment since August, Moulton was part of a decent-sized group of Florida natives who made the trip to Iowa City for what turned out to be a great weekend to be on campus. The running back remained impressed and spent the past week weighing his options.

On Friday night, Moulton made a decision and reversed his FAU commitment to the Hawkeyes.

Moulton is a dynamic runner with high speed. Listed at 5’10” and 190 pounds, he’s probably a bit shorter than his roster size, but doesn’t let the lack of bulk stop him from busting tackles at a high rate.

On film, Moulton shows a good ability to hit the holeshot and make himself even smaller pushing through the second tier to avoid or minimize contact. Once through that second layer of defenders, Moulton lets top speed do the rest, outpacing the secondary and anyone taking bad chase angles.

As a junior, Moulton rushed for 1,075 yards and 18 touchdowns for Cardinal Gibbons High School. This year, he’s had 474 yards and five touchdowns so far. Those ratings helped him earn a 3-star rating from Rivals and 247 Sports, as well as increased interest from top contenders.

Despite his commitment to the FAU, Moulton received offers from Syracuse, Toledo, Buffalo, Central Michigan and several others while attracting increased interest from Northwestern and Indiana.

In Iowa, Moulton says HawkeyeReport he liked the atmosphere and the environment.

“The atmosphere is great. It’s a college town and everyone loves Iowa football, no matter how good they are. It’s always going to be a busy game just because that’s how much the fans love football…I had a great time in Iowa. They treated me like family and they kept it with me all the time.

With the addition of Moulton, the Hawkeyes now have 18 commitments in the Class of 2023. The class continues to move up to 24th nationally by Rivals and 28th according to 247 Sports. Moulton is the second Sunshine State running back to commit to Iowa this cycle. Former signing and Napoli native Kendrick Raphael saw interest increase significantly after his decision and reopened his commitment in September.

That leaves only Moulton as members of the Florida class. However, with several out-of-state visitors this past weekend, he may have some company in the coming days.

Welcome aboard Kamari Moulton!
