According to, "After landing scholarship offers from all across the country this past year, 6-foot-5, 245-pound John Waggoner has officially given his verbal commitment to the Iowa coaching staff."

The Dowling product helped the Maroons to their fifth straight Class 4A championship. In his senior campaign, he amassed 27 tackles, 12.5 for a loss and 5.5 sacks. He will definitely push the continued expansion of Iowa's DE crop (AJ Epenesa), but may also allow the defense to shuffle players to free up the best bodies for the best positions.

This is a great start to the recruiting campaign...great to lock up the local talent!
