Hawkeyes' Hyde Receives Honor

There were few bright spots for Iowa last season as the Hawkeyes stumbled to their worst record in more than a decade.

The struggles didn't include the play of cornerback Micah Hyde.

Hyde closed out a stellar career by being named the Big Ten's defensive back of the year for 2012.

The three-year starter at cornerback is perhaps Iowa's most promising NFL prospect this spring.

Hyde has good size for a cornerback at 6-foot-1 and just over 190 pounds, and he's got plenty of positive game film for scouts to pore over dating to 2009. But Hyde has a lot of work ahead of him over the next three months, so he's signed up with the TEST Football Academy in San Diego to prepare for the scouting combine and April draft.
