Hawkeyes Complete 2023-24 Signing Class

IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa track and field welcomes 19 student-athletes to the men’s program as part of the 2023 recruiting class, Director of Iowa Track and Field Joey Woody announced Thursday.

“I’m extremely excited about the 2023 men’s track and field and cross country recruiting class,” Woody said. “My staff did a tremendous job recruiting the best talent from Iowa and around the world to find the right athletes who will be immediate contributors to our program. Our recruiting class includes athletes who will cover all event areas for our men’s program. We graduated many Big Ten medalists, NCAA qualifiers and All-Americans, but I feel very confident in these newcomers,” Woody added. “They have the elite talent and ability to fill many of those holes to keep our program at the top of the Big Ten and NCAA. I’m very impressed with how our incoming freshman and transfers have already shown their maturity, hard work ethic, and commitment to winning team championships.”

This year’s incoming class represents five states, including nine athletes from the state of Iowa. The Hawkeyes also welcome one student-athlete from Jamaica and one from Nigeria.
