IOWA CITY, IOWA - University of Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz announced Tuesday that sophomore defensive backs Torrey Campbell and Kevin Buford have left the football program.
Campbell has left the Hawkeye football squad to pursue fulltime participation with the Hawkeye track and field team. Buford has informed the Iowa coaching staff that he will transfer to another institution.
Buford (5-10, 180), was one of seven true freshmen to see action in 2012. He played in nine games, primarily on special teams, recording one solo tackle and four assists. Buford is a native of Canton, Mich.
Campbell (5-11, 183) is a native of Naples, Fla. After a redshirt season in 2011, he played in one game a year ago, but had no statistics. Campbell competes in sprint and hurdle events for the UI track team.
Iowa will conclude spring drills with an open practice on Saturday at 2 p.m. in Kinnick Stadium.
