Iowa linebacker Jay Higgins on Summer Workouts

With Jack Campbell and Seth Benson gone some new faces will need to step up at linebacker for the Iowa defense.

Senior Jay Higgins is the likely starter in the middle and says summer workouts is a good time to build depth.

One of the additions has been Virginia transfer Nick Jackson. He was a second team All-ACC standout last season.

Higgins says as a senior he has taken on more of a leadership role.

The Hawkeyes open at home on September second against Utah State.
