 Hunter Dekkers, Iowa State, Player News

  08/05/22 - QB Hunter DekkersrSo/2025, Iowa State, 6-3, 235 (DS#8 QB) + More +

  He's the highest-ranked quarterback recruit in Iowa State history - or at least since the star system captured everyone's fancy in the early 2000s. His seven-game career includes completing 25 of 43 passes for 311 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. It includes seven rushes for 73 yards and a touchdown. He completed 11 of 16 passes and a touchdown while playing the fourth quarter against Iowa last season. "Hunter is very talented," coach Matt Campbell said. "He's certainly got a strong arm. He's got great athletic ability, but a quarterback is way more than that. "It's the whole picture. And it's the whole puzzle, and what's going to be really fun is to see, even as we get through fall camp, how much Hunter grows in the offense - how much he's ready to continue to evolve and, really, be ready to capture what it takes to play the quarterback position at this level."

Dekkers is confident he'll be ready by the Sept. 3 opener against Southeast Missouri at Jack Trice Stadium. Everyone is confident. "One of the last things Brock told me, was that he hopefully taught me ways of handling both the good and the bad," Dekkers said. "That, to me, was interesting. It was very well put. "There's going to be some differences, like for sure in the vertical game, but there's more to it than just that. It's how you handle all the situations. Brock was very good at that." He'll be the first Iowan to take the first Iowa State snap in a season-opening game since Joel Lanning in 2016. He's replacing a guy who re-wrote Iowa State's quarterback record book. - Des Moines Register

  It's hard to overstate the job ahead for Hunter Dekkers. The 6-foot-3, 203-pounder takes over the Iowa State offense after two years of an understudy, tasked with replacing Brock Purdy, the most accomplished QB in program history, and keeping Iowa State on the upward trajectory its charted for the last six years. All with minimal experience and an offense that lost All-American weapons at multiple positions. That's what makes Dekkers the Cyclones' most important player in 2022. "True superstar is can you handle being what a starting quarterback in a Power Five school looks like?" Campbell said earlier this year. "Quarterback is a different animal. Can you handle the grind of playing Power Five football, and handling the success and failures that come with it? "Hunter has competitive excellence. You see talent and ability in him." Dekkers got only mop-up duty in Iowa State's historic 2020 season, but twice saw significant time - vs. Iowa and at Oklahoma - in 2021. Both, though, were in limited quantities. He threw just 36 passes a year ago, making him very much an unknown commodity for anyone outside the Bergstrom Football Complex.

In those small opportunities, though, Dekkers has shown enough for there to be reason for optimism. He's got a big arm, making the vertical threat realer than it ever was under Purdy, whose accuracy and efficiency was often predicated on short tosses over deep throws. He's also shown the ability to be resilient, marching Iowa State down for a touchdown at Oklahoma after throwing an interception the previous drive. It's not much to go on, but Campbell has shown lots of confidence in Dekkers. Campbell has been able to watch Dekkers closely for two years in practice, and he liked what he saw enough to opt against bringing in a transfer QB to even compete for the job. "Superstar potential," wide receiver Xavier Hutchinson said of his future QB. - Des Moines Register

  Iowa State quarterback Hunter Dekkers will be a key to the team's success in 2022.

  Xavier Hutchinson was all-smiles when I asked about Hunter Dekkers' off-season. Your eyes would light up, too, if you're on the end of 70-yard bombs. Granted, that's not happening against a defense during these hot days of summer, but that isn't the point. The point is that Dekkers' hard work since assuming the record-setting job quarterback Brock Purdy had before being drafted by the San Francisco 49ers - well, that's been pretty impressive stuff. "You should see him," Hutchinson said. "He looks like a different guy out there." Dekkers is in the best shape of his life, shedding 40-some pounds from during his freshman season after starring at West Sioux High School in Hawarden. He's more agile. He's quicker. He's no longer a quarterback in the body of a tight end, or even a linebacker.

I asked offensive coordinator Tom Manning about Dekkers' makeover. "Yeah, that's Hunter," Manning told me at the Cyclones' annual football prospect camp last month. "Looks good, doesn't he?" Indeed. No more baby day. No more "freshman fifteen," or whatever it became after leaving home for the first time. "Down to about 210 pounds," Dekkers told me at the camp. "Feels great. Best I've ever felt." "He's been great this summer," coach Matt Campbell said of Dekkers. Purdy provided several memorable one-liners during his time. This one, long after the last bowl game, resonated as much as the others. "Don't sleep on Hunter Dekkers," he told me. "Just watch." - Des Moines Register

  Poised for a 2022 standout season: Sophomore Hunter Dekkers is in line to take over for Brock Purdy, the winningest QB in school history who set 32 school records while starting the last 46 games. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound Dekkers spent the last two seasons as Purdy's backup. Dekkers played in four games in 2021, completing 20 of 36 passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 61 yards and two touchdowns on four carries. Dekkers is a former four-star recruit out of Hawarden, Iowa, where he broke Iowa high school career records with 10,628 yards and 126 touchdowns passing. - AP College Football
