College Football: Iowa’s Linderbaum and Hankins Honored

KILJ — Two Iowa football players have been placed on the Associated Press Midseason All-American team.

Center Tyler Linderbaum and cornerback Matt Hankins were both selected.

Hankins was a preseason second-team All-Big 10 choice and has record 17 tackles and three interceptions this season.

Linderbaum was a preseason first-team All-America selection by several outlets.

He is widely panned as a shoo-in top-20 pick in next April’s NFL Draft.
