Links For Iowa welcomes walk-on Adam Cox


Adam Cox to walk on

Last week, when it was reported that Gavin Smith is joining the Hawkeyes, I kind of breezed over a new name: Adam Cox. I had seen his name tied to the program in a couple of places, so I went ahead and included it in the list of current walk-ons. HawkeyeReport has since reported that Adam Cox is indeed walking on and will play fullback.

Cox was the fullback in a flexbone triple-option attack in high school. A fullback in a flexbone offense is not really the same as a fullback that Iowa typically uses. The flexbone fullback gets a lot of carries and is usually the best runner on the team. If you're familiar with Georgia Tech's offense from a few years ago when Iowa played them in the Orange Bowl, this was the "A back" position.

So Cox hasn't really had a ton of experience being a lead blocker, but can run the ball. As a senior he amassed 1782 yards and 34 touchdowns on 215 carries.


Quick hits

  • Brad Banks threw for a franchise record 10 TDs and ran in another in the Barnstormers 76-69 victory over the San Jose SaberCats. It took Banks about a game and a half to get his feet wet, but now he has been back in his Heisman runner-up form. I don't care if this is the AFL, 10 touchdowns is ridiculous.
  • More practice pictures are up.
  • Stanzi is getting looked at by most NFL teams with a need at QB. That latest to team Stanzi worked out for was the Miami Dolphins.
