Despite being arrested on a pair of misdemeanor charges early Saturday morning, Iowa starting cornerback Micah Hyde looks like he’ll continue to be the starter — at least against Michigan State this weekend.
The Hawkeyes’ most recent depth chart shows Hyde at the top of the two-deep.
Hyde was hit with counts of public intoxication and interference with official acts during Iowa’s bye weekend; he has pleaded guilty to the latter charge. Additionally, tight end Ray Hamilton was arrested early Saturday morning for presence on premise (licensed liquor establishment) after hours, and offensive lineman Drew Clark was arrested for public intoxication.
“I was disappointed to learn of the events involving three team members, as all three of these student-athletes have been good citizens during their time in our program,” Kirk Ferentz said in a statement. “We will follow protocol set by the UI student-athlete Code of Conduct, as well as taking additional measures within the program.”
A senior, Hyde is tied for third on the team with 33 tackles, and has three tackles for loss as well as a forced fumble.
