Cedric Everson lasted all of three months on campus in Iowa City before being removed from the team.
Everson, a four-star recruit from Detroit, Michigan was expected to be a future starting corner for the Iowa football team. Leaving high school, he was listed as an athlete and held offers to eight schools including Miami and Michigan State.
Yet, within months of joining the Hawkeyes, he reportedly sexually assaulted a female student on campus and was kicked off the team shortly thereafter. He also reportedly transferred to Alcorn State but never saw playing time.
Four years after the incident, Everson was convicted of a simple misdemeanor related to the incident.
Unlike the others, who either dealt with academic issues, limited playing time or injuries, Everson was the only one who was removed from the team by Kirk Ferentz.
Academic issues notwithstanding, Everson’s tenure might be one of the shortest tenures of any Iowa football player to ever actually enroll in the school.
