  Draft Scout by Conference

  08/05/22 - WR Brody BrechtrFr/2026, Iowa

  Iowa's wide receiving corps were already thin entering fall camp and during Big Ten media days Ferentz revealed the room took another blow with junior Jackson Ritter missing the 2022 season to injury. A group of three sophomore receivers can mitigate low numbers with a strong step forward: Brody Brecht, Arland Bruce IV and Keagan Johnson. Bruce and Johnson are the more accomplished of the three, playing big roles in Iowa's offense down the stretch of last season. Now, there's been a shift in mentality as they prepare to become go-to options and the top of opponents' scouting reports beginning week one of the season.

The most intrigue lies with Brecht, Iowa's two-sport athlete who could join the receivers in having a big part of Iowa's 2022 offensive plans. Brecht was a summer enrollee last year but broke his thumb during a blocking drill in August camp. Those factors set back his football development in 2021 and he took a redshirt. During spring he balanced baseball and football, practicing with the football team on non-baseball gamedays and attending every meeting. The hope for Iowa's coaching staff is Brecht (listed at 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds stays healthy this August and emerges as a viable candidate for the "X", or outside, receiver position. Doing so would give Iowa the big-bodied target) that they missed last season and allow for Bruce and Johnson to be even more position-flexible in Iowa's offense. - Iowa City Press-Citizen
