Jake Karchinski, picked up an offer from the Hawkeyes and tweeted out the news Monday afternoon.
A few minutes later, Hofher responded under Karchinski’s tweet, and that’s when things got interesting. The coach replied that he was “underwhelmed” with the prospect. Hofher probably was trying to send a DM, but slipped up and got caught. Hofher deleted the tweet afterwards (of course), but Travis Wilson of WisSports.com posted a screenshot:
Probably not the best recruiting strategy, if you ask me. Not that the rivalry needs anymore fuel, but if Karchinski does wind up at Iowa, he’ll have plenty of motivation when the Hawkeyes face the Cyclones.
