Iowa football ended the season on a high-note, with a blowout win over Illinois, and a dramatic victory against rival Nebraska. With the regular season wrapped up, the Hawkeyes are losing a young player in cornerback Joshua Turner to transfer, however.

Turner, a Delray Beach, Fla. native, was a member of Iowa's 2017 recruiting class.

247Sports' composite rankings had him as the No. 1524 player in the country. He was the No. 160 cornerback in the class, and the No. 219 player in the state.

While the rankings don't blow you away, Turner did have other big programs after him. Boston College, Purdue, and Wisconsin were among his other offers, and he also had them from top local Group of Five teams like UCF and USF.

After playing in every game for Iowa football this season, Joshua Turner will transfer.

He made the announcement on Twitter:

As noted by Go Iowa Awesome, Turner's contributions were primarily on special teams this season. He finished the regular season with five total tackles.

When it came to injuries at his position, some younger players on the Hawkeye roster got the shot to play in the defensive backfield ahead of Turner.

Iowa finished the season with an 8-4 record, and in second place in the Big Ten West. The Hawkeyes will be heading to a blow for the sixth straight season.
