It's been awhile (over two months, but who's counting except for some fans) since Iowa picked up a football commitment, but that was remedied Tuesday afternoon with the verbal pledge of Dublin (Ohio) wide receiver Cameron Wilson.

"Well, I've been putting a lot of thought into it the past few months and especially this last week, and I just felt like Iowa has everything that I wanted in a school so I didn't have to look any further." Wilson told "Iowa was the right place for me, so I decided to commit."

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound receiver selected Iowa over Boston College, Illinois, Purdue and Pitt. After visiting Iowa City and touring campus a few times during the spring, Wilson just felt at home with the Hawkeyes and comfortable enough to commit.

"I really liked the football atmosphere," he said. "We were there for the spring scrimmage and it was a really cold day, but they still had a lot of fans there cheering for them. The coaches, the players, and everyone treated me really well and I just enjoyed it there." 

Wilson is the second commit for Iowa's recruiting class of 2012. He hauled in 77 catches for more than 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns for Jerome High School last season.
