IOWA CITY — Iowa junior Kris Murray withdrew his name earlier this month from the NBA Draft but says he will be at the draft Thursday night.

Twin brother Keegan is considered a possible top five pick after an All-American sophomore season with the Hawkeyes.

Kris says he felt he will benefit from another year in the Iowa program.

Kris discovered how high his profile is during Iowa’s kids camp last week.

The NBA Draft is Thursday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

 

 

 

DETROIT — Former Iowa star tight end T.J. Hockenson hopes his fourth season can be a breakout year for the Detroit Lions. Hockenson had 61 catches, including four touchdowns in a season that was cut short by hand surgery.

Hockenson likes the potential of the offense under new coordinator Ben Johnson.

Hockenson believes the offense will do a better job of spreading the field and giving him for favorable matchups.

The Lions finished the 2021 season with a 3-13-1 record.
