As the other thread on this was killed because it was too paywall'd, that KCCI Des Moines is now reporting should place this topic into the public realm:
Jewel Hampton posted the following message on his Facebook page Sunday night: "Former Hawkeye!!! wats next???"
Iowa Spokesman Steve Roe told KCCI on Sunday night that he is unaware of any change to Hampton's actual status with the team. We should find out in the next few days if Hampton's departure is legitimate.
Hampton's sophomore season was cut short when he injured his knee against Arizona in September. The running back was considered one of Iowa's best players entering the year.
It has been a tough couple of days for Iowa football. On Tuesday, WR Derrell Johnson-Koulianos was suspended after being arrested on drug charges. Friday night, running back Brandon Wegher was officially granted his release from the team.
I'll save JamieMac the work on recommending Missouri in that bowl game. FWIW, more rumors out there that more bad news looming.
