After a soap opera drama that turned into a saga, there is an answer. Five-star recruit Kadin Proctor has officially changed his commitment from the Iowa Hawkeyes to the Alabama Crimson Tide.
The announcement came from Proctor himself as he posted the news on his personal Twitter account. The move comes just one day before Early Signing Day. Proctor will sign his national letter of intent tomorrow.

The move has been gathering steam over the past month as Proctor began visiting other programs. In November he visited the University of Oregon Ducks and recently spent a weekend with the Crimson Tide.
Proctor is considered the nation’s top offensive tackle and No. 5 player overall in the class of 2023 by 247Sports and committed to the Hawkeyes only through June 30, 2022.
Originally, he drafted the 6-foot-7, 330-pound offensive tackle out of Southeast Polk High School in Des Moines, who committed to the Hawkeyes at Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon and Penn State.
Proctor’s flip is a blow to the Iowa recruiting class as one would expect. Using the 247Sports class calculator and comparing it with the overall team ranking, the Hawkeyes would become the nation’s No. 37 class.
Best of luck to Proctor with his time at Alabama. With the transfer portal gone, he could return home, but for now, all the best for his time with the Crimson Tide.
