Iowa football reportedly in contact with Oklahoma transfer QB General Booty

The quarterback position does not appear to be a position of strength for the Iowa Hawkeyes in 2024. Yes, that’s been the case for a number of years now, but it is especially dire this season.

With Cade McNamara still rehabbing from the ACL injury that sidelined him from Week 6 onward last season and pretty much every other quarterback in the program leaving in the transfer portal, Iowa is running out of passers.

Luckily, the transfer portal is still at Iowa’s disposal. While Iowa has been linked to Northwestern’s Brendan Sullivan, the Hawkeyes could be looking out of conference to find quarterback help.

Pete Nakos of On3 reported on Friday that Iowa has been in contact with Oklahoma transfer quarterback General Booty.

Booty has already held talks with multiple programs, including Iowa. Nakos reported Booty has also heard from Tulsa, Samford, UTSA and Louisiana-Monroe.

Booty appeared in only two games over two years for the Sooners after transferring from Tyler Junior College in Texas. He threw for 3,410 yards and 27 touchdowns in his lone season for Tyler Junior College. He comes from an NFL legacy.

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

It’s hard to judge what Booty’s impact on Iowa football could be. The Hawkeyes need a quarterback, but Booty didn’t really play for Oklahoma.

That gives zero clue how Booty looks at the Division I level. To be fair, just because he hasn’t gotten the opportunity yet, does not mean Booty can’t have the goods.
