The players that will leave the Hawkeyes at the end of the year, along with their hometown and positions, include:

Tanner Miller of Kalona, Iowa- Defensive back
Don Shumpert of Saint Louis, Missouri - Wide receiver

Parents wore jerseys with their player's name and number printed on it.

The day is an annual tradition for the football program.
