Jewel Hampton to Southern Illinois

Jewel Hampton has officially enrolled in classes at SIU and joined the football team. He has already started taking classes so will be able to participate in spring practice. Hampton decided to transfer from Iowa in December. It was a mutual decision by Hampton and the Iowa coaches as things did not go in the right direction after Hampton's impressive freshman year. He suffered two season-ending knee injuries in back-to-back years and was also arrested for public intox/under-age in a bar and served a 1-game suspension.

SIU is an FCS school, so Hampton won't have to sit out a year. The Salukis main focus with Hampton right now is making sure he knee is healthy and that he will be ready to play this fall.

Happy Pi Day
