Iowa quarterbacks Jake Rudock and C.J. Beathard spoke with the media on Tuesday as the team prepared…
Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz named his starting quarterback on Friday, eight days before the season-opener against Northern Illinois at Kinnick Stadium. Redshirt sophomore Jake Rudock emerged from the three-man competition as the winner.
None of the quarterbacks on Iowa's roster has taken a Division I snap. Sokol played junior college ball in Arizona.
Here's a look at Rudock at last Saturday's Kids Day:
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Rudock hails from Weston, FL and the famed Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas program. The school won the mythical national championship with a 15-0 record his senior season when he was named the South Florida Player of the Year by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel newspaper.
The rest of Iowa's depth chart for the Northern Illinois game was expected to be released Friday afternoon, according to the school's Twitter account.
