Reggie Spearman Flips To Iowa

The least surprising decision ever.

You may remember Reggie Spearman. He's the linebacker from Simeon who originally committed to Illinois in August, but since then has made a habit of saying he's committed to Illinois while not being committed to Illinois. He's taken trips to Iowa and just last weekend to Syracuse.

And on Tuesday night, a few hours before he was able to officially send in a letter of intent, Spearman told the world he was committed to Iowa.

Which, I'm not going to lie, sucks.

While I haven't been a fan of the way Spearman has treated his recruitment, I don't begrudge him for it either. All I really care about is that he could have helped Illinois on the football field and instead he'll be trying to help Iowa, and I wish him luck.

Now we just hope he's the last defection in the class.
