Akrum Wadley was the second Temple commit to accept a scholarship offer from another school on Saturday.
The senior running back, who played at Weequahic High School (N.J.) announced that he would now be an Iowa Hawkeye after visiting the Big Ten campus this weekend. He originally committed to Temple on Jan. 21.
Iowa coach Kirt Ferentz visited Wadley on Tuesday. That and Iowa’s campus sold him on the Hawkeyes.
“It reminds me of where I grew up in South Jersey in Willingboro,” Wadley told NJ.com. “ That campus incredible. They have a nice indoor facility. And I watched clips of the fans on YouTube, and they are really into it. It’s the Big Ten, and I want to compete at the highest level.”
