Proctor explains decision to leave Iowa for Alabama

Kadyn Proctor has officially signed with the University of Alabama and is receiving criticism for it. The Southeast Polk senior is rated as the No. 1 offensive lineman in the nation and No. 5 player overall. He verbally committed to the University of Iowa back on June 30 but announced the change Tuesday. On Wednesday, he signed with Alabam and explained his decision.”When I was going to Iowa, I felt like I was settling. I was comfortable for what I had known with all the people and the coaches there,” said Proctor. “I really did not make my decision correctly. Six, seven months later, before signing day, is when I went down there (to Alabama) and got to see everything that was laid out for me. It is not about the money. If people knew about the money situation, then they wouldn’t be talking about it. I want to play football at a prestigious school. There’s a lot of competition down there, and it will ultimately make me better.” Alabama has 26 five and four -star players coming in, plus it has the top class in the nation. Iowa has zero five-star players and one four-star player. Proctor, who is only 17 years old, told KCCI’s Jeff Dubrof about the hatred he has received on social media. Iowa still landed many in-state three-star players, including Iowa City LB Ben Kueter, Harlan LB Aidan Hall, and Norwalk DL Maddux Borcherding-Johnson. They also gained two Michigan transfers as previously reported: QB Cade McNamara and TE Erick All. 247 Sports ranked the class 37th in the nation. ISU’s class is headlined by a couple of Ankeny Hawks. QB JJ Kohl is a 4-star QB ranked among the top 10 nationally. His teammate Jamison Patton signed as a safety. SEP’s record-setting RB Abu Sama also signed. ISU’s class is ranked 45th by 247 Sports.
