College Football: Iowa’s DeJean Adjusting to College Football

(Via Radio Iowa) 

Cooper DeJean says he is adjusting to the college level as he goes through preseason practice at Iowa.

The multi-sport standout led OABCIG to a state title last fall and has been working at safety for the Hawkeyes after playing quarterback at the prep level.

I think my first time hitting when we were in pads, the physicality is just way different than small-town Iowa football. It’s been great so far, all the older guys are great to us, so it’s been good” DeJean said.

DeJean has been working closely at strong and free safety, spending time learning from senior starter Jack Koerner and is expected to make several special teams units.

The Hawkeyes will open their season at home September 4th against Indiana.
