The Hawkeyes expect to have two first rounders at the position taken in today’s NFL Draft at the position: T.J. Hockenson and Noah Fant.Now, Iowa is in contention to land yet another tight end. This one comes from another Big Ten program.Rutgers’ Travis Vokolek is leaving New Jersey after two seasons. He will have three years to play two, wherever he winds up transferring.This weekend, he is making a trip to Iowa City. It is one of three major programs he’s set to visit.From Rivals:“Iowa, Arkansas, and Kansas State,” said Vokolek. “I’m still looking at my options, but I plan on visiting those three.”That process will begin this week as Vokolek leaves tomorrow for an official visit to Iowa, which is the first trip that he has scheduled.“I’m looking forward to getting to know some of the guys on the team and get a better feel for the campus,” Vokolek told HawkeyeReport.com.Travis Vokolek caught 16 passes for 184 yards and two touchdowns in 2018.He started seven games for the Scarlet Knights last season.The 6-foot-6 pass catcher is originally from Missouri, though he has family in Iowa as well, which may help the Hawkeyes. He was a three-star recruit in the 2017 class.247Sports ranked him No. 2030 overall in the class, and No. 94 among tight ends.[Rivals]last_img read more
