Iowa loses commitment from U.S. Army All-American running back

Eno Benjamin has reconsidered his future college.

On Sunday, the Wylie East (Wylie, TX) running back announced a decommitment from Iowa.

Benjamin had originally verbally committed to the Hawkeyes on April 18 following an unofficial visit to Iowa City just over a month prior. He also received a scholarship offer from Illinois the same day.

The 2017 U.S. Army All-American most recently took unofficial visits to LSU (April 16), Baylor (March 17), Kansas (March 12), Iowa (March 11), Northwestern (March 10), Ohio State (March 9), Michigan (March 8) and Texas A&M (Feb. 28).


Benjamin possesses traits that fit in a variety of roles for a football program. On tape, the senior provided dependability in the backfield on all three downs while also spending time out on the perimeter as a wide receiver. On special teams, Benjamin displays the potential to be dynamic in both the kick and punt return game at the next level as well.
