Hawkeyes running back bolts into NCAA transfer portal
An Iowa running back has decided to look at his options when it comes to continuing his college football career.
Samson Evans, a rising redshirt sophomore, announced on Monday that he will be entering his name in the NCAA transfer portal. He makes the decision after spending the last two years on the Hawkeyes roster. Evans tweeted out his decision.
“After much thought and talking to my family, I’ve decided to enter my name into the NCAA transfer portal,” Evans wrote. “I’d personally like to thank the University of Iowa and all the coaches for giving me the opportunity to pursue my dreams. However, it is time for me to move on and I’m excited for what the future may hold.”

Evans spent two seasons at Iowa but did not play in any games during his time with the program. He redshirted his first season in 2018, meaning he will have three years of eligibility left at his next stop.
As a member of the 2018 recruiting class, Evans was considered a three-star dual-threat quarterback. The 6-foot, 210-pound Evans received offers from 11 programs, but ultimately decided on Iowa over Iowa State, Illinois, Minnesota, Syracuse, Army, Colorado State and others.
