IOWA CITY, Iowa – Redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Noah Fenske announced Monday that he is transferring from the Iowa football program.
The New Hampton, Iowa, native never saw game action as a Hawkeye.
Fenske told HawkFanatic via text message that he is leaving Iowa for personal reasons, and wanted a chance to play and a fresh start.
Fenske was listed as the second-team center for spring practice behind Tyler Linderbaum.
The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Fenske is the second offensive lineman to leave the program this year.
Bettendorf, Iowa, native Mark Kallenberger announced his retirement from football in February.
Fenske is the fourth offensive lineman to leave the program since the start of 2020.
Both Jeff Jenkins and Ezra Miller announced their departures in January 2020.
Miller, a native of Holstein, Iowa, ended up at Nebraska, while Jenkins, a native of Crystal Lake, Illinois, is out of football altogether.
Fenske came to Iowa as a three-star recruit in the 2019 class, according to Rivals.com.
Seven of the players that signed in that class are not currently on the Iowa roster.
Defensive lineman Jalen Hunt never enrolled at Iowa and now is at Michigan State.
