 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  From late March through early May, Iowa's football team took part in spring practice in their first steps to return to normalcy in 2021. But they did it largely without one of their key players on offense. Wide receiver Nico Ragaini missed spring practice due to injury. However, the redshirt junior is healthy now and prepared to take part in the next phase of summer conditioning starting on Tuesday. "I had a little bit of a back problem," Ragaini said. "I've been working out again, I'm cleared and a full go, so I'm excited to get going again. "We start up 7-on-7 and all of that stuff (Wednesday) so we're all excited for that to happen; start throwing the football around and stuff so it should be exciting." Ragaini's presence will be a welcomed addition to an Iowa receiving corps that lost it's top two wide receivers from last season in Brandon Smith and Ihmir Smith-Marsette.

Ragaini isn't lacking in experience, with 24 career games and 65 receptions in his Hawkeye career. He has primarily worked out of the slot, but Iowa coaches will likely lean on the veteran this fall. He's more than fine with that. "That's always the goal to be the No. 1, go-to guy," Ragaini said. "Just want to make (quarterback Spencer Petras) as connected to me as he possibly can and have all the trust in me to throw me the ball in a third down when we need to move the sticks. "I just have to keep working and building up the chemistry with Spencer and the other quarterbacks to be that go-to guy." - Iowa City Press-Citizen
