Wiegers Leaves Iowa for Eastern Michigan

Tyler Wiegers, a redshirt junior quarterback, is leaving the Big Ten for Ypsilanti as a graduate transfer. Wiegers, a Detroit native, played in four games for the Hawkeyes over four years. He challenged for the starting job this year, but was ultimately beaten out - but he did manage to throw a touchdown pass against Illinois. The Eagles are looking to replace a senior quarterback, so it's likely Wiegers will get a chance to earn the starting job.

Wiegers has graduated from Iowa and is already enrolled at EMU.
