  Draft Scout by Conference

  05/19/22 - DT Aaron GravesFr/2026, Iowa

  Athletically, Graves is one of the most prolific to come out of Iowa in recent memory. At 6-foot-5 and 265 pounds, he made a name as a dominant two-way lineman for Southeast Valley High. He'll play defensive line for the Hawkeyes and his football resume includes two All-Iowa Elite team selections by the Des Moines Register. This fall, he led the way to Southeast Valley's first state championship in 2021. But that's not all. Graves is a four-sport athlete. He's the school's all-time leading scorer in basketball (1,356 points), all-time leader in shot put in track and field (52 feet, 2 inches) and is a two-time district champion and two-time fourth place finisher in the state wrestling finals.

Graves committed to Iowa in 2019 as a freshman and never wavered. He's the second-highest rated prospect in their 2022 class as a four-star recruit and the No. 128 player in the country, according to 247sports. His short recruitment closed the door on other likely Power 5 offers. Graves was never in the attention that with being a major recruit. He approached the recruiting process with the same business-like approach that he does in the classroom. "I could be a two-star or a five-star and I don't think it would change how good I really am to myself," Graves said. "My buddies always tell me that I could've went on all of these visits around the country and it's like, "Yeah, but I knew where I wanted to go since I was young so I didn't see the need to waste my time or any coaches' time." "I committed (to Iowa) right then when I go the offer and didn't look back." - Iowa City Press-Citizen
