Iowa asks Malloy to walk on

High two-star running back Michael Malloy (Sioux City, Ia./Bishop Heelan Catholic) committed to Iowa in July but it now appears that he will need to walk on, The Gazette reports.

Malloy was arrested in August and charged with four offenses, plead guilty to a misdemeanor, and was sentenced to nine months probation. He was suspended for the first three weeks of his senior year and then sustained a torn ACL early in the season.

“It’s my understanding that he’ll have to pay for his first year there,” Sioux City Heelan coach Roger Jansen said. “He could then end up on scholarship depending how he does.”

“I think he’s planning on Iowa,” Jansen said. “He’s given me no indication that he’s changed his mind.” South Dakota is his only other scholarship offer.
