Drew Ott says goodbye, thanks Iowa fans in Instagram post
Drew Ott’s time in Iowa City came to an end one year sooner than he would’ve liked.
After a long, drawn-out process, the NCAA denied his appeal for a medical hardship waiver on Wednesday. He’ll move on to the NFL, where he’ll have a rushed pre-evaluation period, to say the least.
But Ott didn’t want to go to the next level without giving a proper farewell. He took to Instagram to share one final thank you to the Iowa fans who supported him:
Finding out that my time has come to an end here at Iowa leaves me with a lot of people to thank. Thank you to my coaches for giving me the opportunity, believing in me, and staying with me through this whole process. Hawkeye fans, you have been amazing and thank you for the constant support. I wouldn’t have been able to do any of this without my friends and family. #onceahawkalwaysahawk #TheDecision
