This week, the 6-foot-5, 205-pound Krieger-Coble set out to do just that as he made a one-day stop at Iowa's camp on Tuesday and sure enough came home with an offer from the Hawkeyes.

The offer from the Hawkeyes is the second for Krieger-Coble, joining Iowa State, who offered last month. As a junior, he put up good numbers for only appearing in five games, finishing with 34 catches for 491 yards and six touchdowns.
