IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Desmond King plans on coming back for his senior campaign. King's mother, Yvette Powell, confirmed the news to the Daily Iowan's Danny Payne saying King had "unfinished business."

The junior won the Jim Thorpe Award this season as the top defensive back in the country. King tied an all-time Iowa record with 8 interceptions.

King had submitted his name to the NFL College Advisory Committee for an evaluation prior to the Rose Bowl.

The decision bolsters an Iowa defensive secondary that will feature three seniors next season in King, Greg Mabin and Maurice Fleming
