SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz announced Tuesday that two more players will depart the program before the start of the 2013 season. Fortunately for Hawkeye faithful, neither is a running back.

Kevin Buford, who saw solid action as a true freshman at defensive back in 2012, informed the coaching staff that he will transfer to another institution, according to a release sent out by the Iowa Athletics Department. The Canton, Mich., native mostly saw time on special teams, but he appeared in nine games as a defensive back in passing situations, recording 5 tackles.

Torrey Campbell, also a defensive back, red-shirted in 2011 and appeared in one game last year but recorded no statistics. He will continue to be a student-athlete at Iowa as a hurdler and sprinter for the track and field team.

Campbell said he didn’t have any preference of one sport over the other, but that he just wanted to do what made him happy.

“I’m happy running track at Iowa for the time being,” Campbell told The Daily Iowan. “I can’t speak about a lot of things that went into this decision. I’m happy, that’s all that matters.”
