Iowa City, Iowa – It appears the Hawkeye football program has made a last minute addition to their roster, and it couldn’t have come at a better position. According to Blair Sanderson at Rivals Iowa has added JUCO RB Mekhi Sargent who played last season at Iowa Western Community College.
Sargent stands at 5’11” and weighs 215 lbs. He put up big numbers for the Reiver’s this past season rushing for 1,449 yards and 14 TDs. It’s well known that Iowa is a bit thin at the running back position so Sargent will be a welcome addition to the depth chart.
If you watch his highlights below you’ll see that he appears to be a well rounded back who is physically ready to compete at a high level.
