Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz On Lack Of Depth At WR And OL

Wide receiver and offensive line have been two trouble spots for Iowa’s struggling offense and both areas lack depth at the start of spring drills.

Ankeny native Brody Brecht announced he is stepping away to concentrate on baseball and injuries have left the Hawkeyes short on wideouts.

That’s Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz. The offensive line struggled last season for one of the nation’s worst offenses and while that unit has experience, many of the players are sidelined this spring.

Despite being thin up front this spring Ferentz believes the offensive line will be improved next season.

The Hawkeyes finished 8-5 last season.
