Iowa lands a commitment from 2023 four-star QB Marco Lainez

Lainez has many of the characteristics college coaches are looking for in their next quarterback. Measuring at around 6ft-2,225lbs, there are no question marks as to its size. Lainez’s official statistic for this season was 95 completions of 117 attempts (81 percent) for 1,735 yards, 21 touchdowns on passes, two interceptions, 512 yards on the run and three touchdowns on the run. Impressive stats for the New Jersey quarterback and the film confirms it. Lainez’s athleticism and arm strength leap off the screen. Show the ability to keep his eyes down on the pitch as defenders break through the offensive line and can throw with precision on the run. Lainez can adjust the trajectory of his throws when needed and can throw with touch or power. Lainez is a very good athlete and shows the quickness of being a real threat as a ball carrier. He also has a toughness that should make it easier for him to adjust to life as a quarterback in the Big Ten. With another season coming up next year before he arrives in Iowa City, it will be interesting to see Lainez perfect his game.
