Florida running back Kyshaun Bryan announces his decision to transfer from Iowa

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Kyshaun Bryan's status with the Iowa football team appeared uncertain when he didn't participate in preseason practice despite being on scholarship.

The Florida running back ended the uncertainty on Monday when he announced that he plans to transfer from Iowa.

"I will no longer be furthering my career as an Iowa Hawkeye," Bryan said on Twitter. "My family and I feel it is the best decision for my future."

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said just days before the season started that Bryan was kept out of preseason practice for an undisclosed reason and that his status with the team would be addressed during the bye week, which was this past week.

Bryan was redshirted as a true freshman last season and was slowed by an injury.

He was previously committed to South Carolina before switching to Iowa late in the 2017 recruiting cycle.

Bryan helped perenniel power St. Thomas Aquinas High School win a state title as a senior in 2016, rushing for 737 yards and seven touchdowns.
