Iowa has added plenty of depth to its wide receiver position thanks to the transfer portal.
Tuesday, the Iowa football program announced that it has added three transfer wide receivers to the roster. Those players are Jack Combs (Central Michigan), Charlie Jones (Buffalo) and Oliver Martin (Michigan). All three will join the team as redshirt sophomores.
Combs played in five games as a freshman for the Chippewas, catching three passes for 27 yards and a touchdown. All three of his receptions came in Central Michigan’s season finale against Toledo.
Jones had a little more significant role while at Buffalo. He appeared in all 14 games for the Bulls and was utilized as a receiver and kickoff return man. He totaled 395 yards and three touchdowns on 18 receptions in his freshman season. He added 289 yards on 15 kickoff returns.
Martin is the big name of the group, an Iowa City native who committed to play at Michigan over the hometown Hawkeyes. The former four-star receiver entered his name in the transfer portal about a week ago before settling on a transfer to Iowa.
Last season, Martin had 11 catches for 125 yards and a touchdown.
Due to NCAA transfer rules, all three receivers will have to sit out the 2019 season unless they are granted an immediate eligibility waiver.
