Vikings agree to deals with 10 undrafted rookies including ISU’s Farniok


May 5th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms with contracts with 10 undrafted rookies, including Virginia safety Anthony Harris. The Vikings announced the deals Tuesday. Harris was widely pegged as a mid-to-late-round pick, but concerns about a shoulder injury likely contributed to his fall off the board. Harris ran a 4.56-second 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine, tied for seventh fastest at his position. He had 11 interceptions at Virginia.

Others who agreed to contracts were Tennessee cornerback Justin Coleman, Notre Dame wide receiver DaVaris Daniels, Iowa State center Tom Farniok, Old Dominion quarterback Taylor Heinicke, BYU wide receiver Jordan Leslie, Pittsburg State wide receiver Gavin Lutman, Boise State fullback Blake Renaud, Saginaw Valley State guard Jesse Somsel and Boston College guard Bobby Vardaro.

May 4th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Three wrestlers from the University of Iowa are facing burglary charges following a series of break-ins earlier this year. The Linn County Attorney’s office says wrestlers Ross Lembeck, Seth Gross and Logan Ryan each face two counts of felony third-degree burglary. The trio all face seven counts of misdemeanor third-degree burglary, two counts of conspiracy to commit a felony and one count of conspiracy to commit an aggravated misdemeanor.

Marion police spokesman Scott Elam says several vehicles were broken into on March 18 in the community 35 miles north of Iowa City. Elam says one of the vehicle’s owners noticed the athletes, who took off running before being arrested. Lembeck, Gross and Ryan were redshirt freshmen last season.

Coach Tom Brands suspended all three wrestlers. He declined comment.
