Reigning Big Ten Defensive Back of the Year Riley Moss is forgoing the NFL draft and returning for one more season at Iowa.
The 6-foot-1, 194-pound senior cornerback announced his decision Wednesday on social media.
“I have always dreamed of being a Hawkeye and being able to live out this dream every day has been incredibly special for both me and my family. That’s why after talking with my family and doing a lot of self-reflection, I have decided to stay and continue being a Hawkeye for the 2022 season,” he wrote on Twitter.
“I have more goals I would like to achieve and this team has more goals to achieve as well. This has been the hardest decision I have ever had to make, and I am confident that I have made the right one.”
