IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Akrum Wadley scored the lone touchdown of Iowa’s spring game on Saturday as the defense shined. The lack of offensive fireworks didn’t concern Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz, saying it’s par for the course during spring practice.
“At this point after 15 days, our defense might know our offense better than the offense does, quite frankly,” Ferentz said. “It happens in camp, too, just when you work against each other pretty expansively. That’s nothing to be alarmed about.”
Iowa’s depth at running back was on full display. Wadley, along with Jordan Canzeri, LeShun Daniels Jr. and Derrick Mitchell Jr. all split carries and were effective. Mitchell, a converted wide receiver, and Wadley impressed players and coaches with their shiftiness and speed. The duo accounted for the majority of the offensive yards.
