Today, we learned that his Hawkeye career might not be over.
Iowa Hawkeye Football Offensive Coordinator, Brian Ferentz, reached out to Wagner to discuss the possibility of him putting on a Hawkeye Football uniform. Wagner did mention that a number of schools had reached out to him already about playing football for their program. He had this to say about Iowa:
“I am comfortable with Iowa. Iowa has treated me well. I didn’t really want to focus on making the switch until after the season but it’s been something that’s been on my mind. It’s kind of hard to ignore people always talking to you about football and making the change.”
We don’t know for sure if Wagner will end up in a Hawkeye football uniform but a 6’7″ wide receiver does sound pretty intriguing. So for now, we wait. One thing is for sure, the Iowa Football Staff is in his ear.
