Iowa DE announces plans to transfer out of program
An Iowa defensive end has made the decision to enter his name into the NCAA transfer portal. He made the announcement with a post on Twitter on Thursday afternoon.
Jake Karchinski, a two-year member of the Iowa football program and member of the 2019 recruiting class, will explore his opportunities outside of Iowa City. In two seasons, he did not play in any games for the Hawkeyes.
“I wanted to take the time to thank the University and the coaching staff at Iowa for the opportunity to be apart of a great program,” Karchinski wrote on Twitter. “I will forever be grateful for what I have learned here. With that being said I am entering my name in the transfer portal! Excited where this journey takes me.”
