Jordan Bernstine is hoping to land a starting spot at cornerback for the Iowa Hawkeyes. The former Des Moines Lincoln standout saw a lot of action on special teams as a true freshman in 2007 and has returned to the practice field after missing spring workouts after undergoing surgery on his shoulder.
Bernstine says it was a problem most of last season, and they decided to have it fixed for this season. With the shoulder repaired Bernstine is looking to make more of an impact this year. He says he has high expectations for himself and the team.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says Bernstine should get plenty of playing time this season as he is healthy, and stayed "engaged mentally’ even though he missed Spring ball. The Hawkeyes open the season August 30th at home against Maine.
