Everyone knows Riley Moss is talented at the cornerback position and he has the ability to stay with whoever lines up across from him on offense at the wide receiver position.
Opposite of Moss this season for the Iowa Hawkeyes has been Terry Roberts through the first two games. Roberts is starting in place of Jermari Harris who is missing the rest of 2022 and he has not let things drop off even an inch.
Through two games, Roberts has 10 tackles, two pass breakups, and reeled in an interception. This production has been noticed by head coach Kirk Ferentz.
“Terry has really done a good job, and he went through a really tough period obviously getting hurt last fall. It’s been a tough out-of-season for him, challenging medically, but I think what he did starting with game one, he really made his presence felt, first of all, on special teams, which we missed that because he’s a very dynamic special teams player, and then on top of it, he’s really played corner well and played it with some emphasis
out there, some enthusiasm,” said Ferentz when asked about Roberts’ performance thus far.
In three previous seasons Roberts was a special teams ace usually seen first downfield on punt coverage making a spectacular play. This year, the cornerback is in the thick of it and making even more plays.
