An Iola-Scandinavia Football standout has officially committed to the Iowa Hawkeyes. Senior Kristian Welch signed his letter of intent this week to join the Big Ten program. Welch gave a verbal commitment to Iowa last summer, and made it official on Wednesday.
Welch was a First Team All Central Wisconsin Conference selection on both offense and defense. He averaged over ten yards per carry last season. Iowa coaches say they see Welch playing linebacker for the Hawkeyes.
