Williamsburg defensive lineman Corbin Blythe will be joining his brother, Austin, at the University of Iowa. The 6-foot-1, 235-pound high school senior has decided to walk on with the Hawkeyes next year.
"It just felt right," said Blythe. "I felt like it was a great opportunity to play for Iowa and in the Big Ten. Also, another chance to play with my brother was another big plus in going there."
As a senior, Blythe earned first team all-state honors after racking up 91 tackles, 14 TFL, and 7 sacks in leading Williamsburg to an 11-2 record. He also considered Winona State and Central College, among others, before deciding on Iowa.
Iowa's 2013 walk-ons class now includes:
