Woodbury Central twins Landan and Levi Paulsen didn’t want to wait for more offers. They didn’t need any more either.
The Paulsen knew exactly where they wanted to play college football and, despite having one more season left for the Wildcats, both of them committed to the University of Iowa football program via Twitter on Sunday.
Hawkeye fans could one day see the twins on the same offensive line as Landan is a four-star offensive tackle ranked No. 26 by scout.com and Levi is a four-star offensive guard ranked No. 18. Landan is 6-foot-5, 267 pounds, while Levi is 6-4 ½ and weighs 248 pounds.
The Woodbury Central brothers are the second and third four-star commitments of the 2015 class of now five athletes. Quarterback Jack Beneventi of Illinois also has four stars to his name and ranks 19th nationally as he holds offers from Notre Dame, Illinois, Louisville, UMass and Western Michigan.
Both Landan and Levi Paulsen are very active at Woodbury Central. Each helped the Wildcats to a top-10 finish in both the dual state wrestling tournament and the individual state wrestling tournament this past month.
Landan came into the individual portion of the tournament ranked second at Class 1A heavyweight and finished in that spot after losing to sixth-ranked and undefeated Tyler Yankovic of Maquoketa Valley in the championship match.
The Paulsen twins are the fourth and fifth commitments of the class, joining Beneventi, Iowa City Regina quarterback Drew Cook and three-star offensive guard Jake Newborg of West Lyon. Cook is the son of former Iowa tight end and Regina head football coach Marv Cook.
