Iowa loses freshman RB to transfer

Following up on comments made before the Insight Bowl against Oklahoma, Iowa running back Mika’il McCall will not be returning to the Hawkeyes.

The freshman running back wrote on his Facebook page last month “I’m not going to Iowa anymore” — a comment that was subsequently met with “no comment” rebuttals from both Iowa and coach Kirk Ferentz.

Turns out, not much needs to be said. Ferentz mentioned Wednesday that McCall intends to transfer, but didn’t specify to where.

McCall had 11 carries for 65 yards this year, almost all of them coming in the season-opening game against Tennessee Tech. However, McCall missed much of the season with an ankle injury and was suspended for the final two regular season games for undisclosed reasons.

    Don’t let the door hit you in the butt on the way out. That just opens up one more scholarship for a someone that will play. We have a few huskers I wouldn’t mind getting that twtter message from.
