Iowa football has added three wide receivers to its roster, head coach Kirk Ferentz announced Tuesday.

The Hawkeyes officially added Michigan transfer and former Iowa City West standout Oliver Martin. It was announced Martin entered the transfer portal on June 5, and after missing during his first recruitment, the Hawkeyes picked up the wideout they always wanted.

After redshirting his first year in Ann Arbor, Martin hauled in 11 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown last season.

Iowa also added Charlie Jones from Buffalo and Jack Combs from Central Michigan.

Jones caught 18 passes for 395 yards and 3 scores last season, while Combs recorded 3 receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown.

All three will enter the Hawkeye program as redshirt sophomores.
