Less than 48 hours after freshman Greg Garmon announced he was leaving the Iowa football program, the Hawkeyes secured a verbal commitment from a powerful high school running back.

LeShun Daniels, the son of former Ohio State and NFL offensive lineman LeShun Daniels, became the 17th player to verbally commit to Iowa’s 2013 recruiting class.

The 5-foot-11, 220-pound back rushed for 1,614 yards and 14 touchdowns this fall as part of a 9-2 team at Harding High School in Warren, Ohio.

Daniels initially committed to Boston College in June, but re-opened his recruitment after Frank Spaziani was fired last month. He picked up an Iowa offer two weeks ago and was among recruits who visited the Iowa campus last weekend.

“The area really impressed me because I didn’t know what to expect,” Daniels told ESPN.com. “My picture of Iowa was cornfields everywhere, but Iowa City ain’t too bad. There are things to do.”

Daniels is the first running back in this year’s recruiting class. With Garmon’s exit, Iowa anticipates signing around 18-19 players on Feb. 6, the first day high school seniors can sign letters of intent.
