All-Ferentz Team: Wide Receiver

July 8, 2019

Written by Rob Howe


IOWA CITY, Iowa – A much-maligned position at Iowa, the program has produced some standout at this spot during the Ferentz Era. Who can forget Ricky Stanzi hitting Marvin McNutt with the game-winner at Michigan State in ’09?

We put a large group of pass catchers in front of the voters for this one. While the top two proved clear, a lot of opinions highlighted the collection after that.

Ed Hinkel

Skinny: He came to Iowa City as a safety before moving to the other side of the ball. Hinkel possessed great hands and keen route running ability. He caught 135 passes one season, ranks sixth all-time with 16 touchdown receptions, including a school-record four against Minnesota in ’05.
