Iowa Hawkeyes are close to confirming a new quarterback to replace Cade McNamara, who has yet to recuperate from ACL surgery.

In 2024, the Iowa Hawkeyes do not appear to be very strong at quarterback. Yes, this has been the situation for some years, but it is particularly severe this season.

With Cade McNamara still recovering from the ACL surgery that sidelined him from Week 6 and on last season, and nearly every other quarterback in the program opting to depart via the transfer portal, Iowa is running out of quarterbacks.
Fortunately, Iowa can still use the transfer portal to locate competitors. While Iowa has already been linked to Northwestern’s Brendan Sullivan, the Hawkeyes may be looking outside the conference to get some quarterback relief.

Oklahoma QB General Booty Got the Most Predictable NIL Deal - Sports  Illustrated

On Friday, Pete Nakos of On3 reported that Iowa has contacted Oklahoma transfer quarterback General Booty.

Booty joined the transfer portal on Thursday and has already spoken with several programs, including Iowa. According to Nakos, Booty has also heard from Tulsa, Samford, UTSA, and Louisiana-Monroe.


Booty played only two games for the Sooners in two years after transferring from Tyler Junior College in Texas. He threw for 3,410 yards and 27 touchdowns in his one season at Tyler Junior College. He comes from an NFL family.

Both of his uncles, Josh and John David Booty, played Division I football before joining the NFL. General’s father, Abram, was a starting wide receiver for LSU in the late 1990s.

It’s difficult to predict what Booty’s impact on Iowa football will be. The Hawkeyes need a quarterback, but Booty didn’t play much for Oklahoma.

That gives you no idea how Booty appears at the Division I level. To be fair, just because he hasn’t had the opportunity yet does not mean General Booty cannot have the goods.
