Jewel Hampton has been lost for the year, according to the boys over at BHGP. Hampton was set to replace Shonn Greene at running back, after rushing for 463 yards last year. The Hawkeyes will more than likely turn to freshman Brandon Wegher, a 4-star prospect from Sioux City, Iowa. had him ranked as the 16th best running back coming out of high school last year. The Hawks do list Paki O'Meara and Adam Robinson as their top 2 backs for the opener, just don't be surprised to see the freshman enter the mix soon.
