University of Iowa junior left tackle Brandon Scherff said Monday that he will stay at Iowa for his senior season in 2014. Scherff is a native of Denison, Iowa, who started all 12 games this season. He was recently named first team All-Big Ten by a vote of league coaches.
"I am excited to say that I will be staying at the University of Iowa for my senior season in 2014," Scherff said in a statement. "I am looking forward to the 2014 Outback Bowl and playing an outstanding opponent in LSU, and then working as hard as possible with my teammates to prepare for my senior year as a Hawkeye."
The 6'5", 315-pounder was projected by many to be a first round draft pick if he left school early. NFL.com says he should be one of the top three tackles in the country entering his senior season.
Scherff started three games as a freshman and then broke his leg in the seventh game of his sophomore season.
He told KDSN radio in Denison that he will take out an insurance policy in case of injury.
