Nate Stanley had a great career as the quarterback for the Iowa Hawkeyes. But who’s going to replace him? In comes 4-star recruit Spencer Petras.
Petras is big, he’s tall, and he has a cannon of an arm, and his teammates are excited to work with him.
“I definitely feel like Spencer is a natural leader. Just being behind Nate for two years, he shows a lot of characteristics that Nate had,” says Brandon Smith, Iowa wide receiver. “He’s not afraid to be vocal. And you know Nate, he was not the most rah-rah guy but he will tell you pick it up or if you need some encouraging words. Like he will be that guy for you. I definitely think that Spence has those characteristics as well, and he has a strong arm. He’s a big guy, so he is definitely quarterback fit.”
“Yeah, I live with Petras. Going on my second year, you know he is a great guy,” says Tyler Linderbaum, Iowa center. “That’s all I can really say. He is just a special dude. He is one of my best friends, and I am excited for what’s ahead of him, and what he brings to the table.”
The Hawkeyes are scheduled to start practice on August 7.
