Clear Lake (Iowa) four-star tight end Thomas Meyer has committed to Iowa.

He chose the Hawkeyes while also holding offers from the likes of Iowa State, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, Kansas State and Wisconsin.

Meyer is the No. 262 overall prospect in the 2025 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He’s also the No. 15 tight end and No. 3 player in Iowa.

Meyer made his sixth trip to Iowa City on Sept. 30, his second game visit of the month. Assistant coach Jay Niemann led Iowa’s recruitment of the tight end that can also play defensive end. The Hawkeyes are looking to keep the 6-foot-5, 210-pounder on the offensive side of the ball.

“When they first told me they would like me at tight end, I was pretty surprised,” Meyer told HawkeyeReport.com. “Coach Niemann just told me that they would like me to play tight end at the moment, but if I would like to play defensive end we could always talk about that too.”

Iowa has often been tabbed as “Tight End University” as it frequently sends players at the position to the next level. A whopping 12 TEs have been drafted to the NFL since Ferentz became head coach, including current standouts George Kittle, T.J. Hockenson, Noah Fant and Sam LaPorta.

Meyer does not currently have an On3 NIL Valuation. The On3 NIL Valuation is the industry’s leading index that sets high school and college athletes’ projected annual value (PAV). The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
