Brian Ferentz, Seth Wallace and Reese Morgan talk spring football.

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

ANOTHER WEEK, MORE FOOTBALL TALK. This week, Iowa's assistant coaches Brian Ferentz, Reese Morgan and Seth Wallace talk spring football. We also heard from Kirk Ferentz on the weekly Big Ten Teleconference. They touched on numerous subjects from recruiting to Aaron Hernandez. Marc Morehouse has the video of all three assistants in this post. There's also transcripts. Here's the audio of Kirk Ferentz and Drew Ott (more on Ott later). I'll summarize with a lot of bullets:

Brian Ferentz

  • Most important thing for Myers and Boettger is getting reps
  • James Daniels has the best shot of playing time of the freshmen because he's the only one practicing full speed
  • "run game coordinator" is more of a formality than anything
  • On Aaron Hernandez, feels DJ and his family and worse for the family of the victims

Reese Morgan

  • Matt Nelson can play both sides and has a chance to help this season
  • Brady Reiff is smaller than Riley but faster. Both hardworking guys from a good family

Seth Wallace

  • Iowa is more aggressive with recruiting, hence the many early offers
  • Offers sometimes show commitment and gets kids on campus for visits
  • Wallace disagrees that it's tough to recruit skill players to Iowa
  • Mid to low 20's for Iowa's 2016 recruiting class

ABOUT DREW OTT He was asked about former Iowa quarterback Jake Rudock transferring to Michigan. He responded bluntly. Ott said, "I thought he'd have a little more fight in him." Asked about Rudock's leadership qualitiess, Ott replied,  "I don't know. You'd have to ask someone else."

KIRK FERENTZ WAS ON THE TELECONFERENCE TOO. He was also asked about DJ Hernandez and offered his support.

SPEED IS COMING.

ABOUT THOSE NIGHT GAMES.

ALSO.

IOWA HOOPS HAD THEIR ANNUAL AWARDS BANQUETThe Chris Street Award goes to...Aaron White. Not a surprise by any means. There's a list of other awards on Scott Dochterman's blog.

REMEMBER, REMEMBER, THE SEASON STARTED IN NOVEMBER.

ADD HOOPS ADDS ONE. Spring Signing Day was yesterday and as expected, Christian Williams signed his Letter of Intent to Iowa. Iowa has one more scholarship to give and rumors have former Iowan and JUCO SF Dale Jones visiting soon. More on that later.

THERE'S TWO NEW WALK-ONS FOR HOOPS TOO.

GOOD EATS FOR A GOOD CAUSE.
