- Iowa City
I think that is more of a myth. Iowa fans got high hopes with some huge classes with 4 and 5 starts around 2004 and 2005. Injuries and transfers didn't turn out like they wanted so the narrative was, KF did better developing the 3* guys. They have brought in plenty of high-end talent though. You can make a lot of 3* skill position players look great when you have a ton of talent on the O and D lines.My cousin in Bettendorf said that is what Iowa basically does now. They have had much more success with 3* guys than the 4* and 5* guys, who basically just caused trouble for them.
