IOWA CITY — After a surprising 2018 season Iowa running back Mekhi Sargent says he still has a chip on his shoulder heading into this year. The native of Key West, Florida joined the Hawkeyes as a walk-on last summer after playing one season at Iowa Western Community College. Sargent received no division one offers out of high school which he says is common in Key West.
After redshirting his first year in junior college Sargent rushed for more than 1,400 yards in 2017 but once again no division one offers came his way.
Iowa offered a roster spot last summer and Sargent ended up leading the Hawkeyes in rushing with 745 yards. He has more to prove in his junior season.
Iowa opens the season on August 31st hosting Miami of Ohio
