Iowa freshman running back Greg Garmon asked for and was granted a release from his scholarship Wednesday, as first reported by 247 Sports’ Bob Lichtenfels.

Garmon, who was a four-star recruit from Erie, Pa., appeared in 10 games for the Hawkeyes in 2012, rushing for a total of 122 yards on 38 carries. He also hauled in eight catches for 57 yards receiving and returned five kickoffs for a total of 118 return yards. Garmon did not record any touchdowns this past season.

His lone start came in Iowa’s 38-14 loss to Penn State, filling in for then-injured running back Mark Weisman. Garmon missed two games — a 32-31 loss to Central Michigan and a 31-13 win over Minnesota — due to an arm injury suffered during the second quarter of the Hawkeyes’ 27-16 victory over Northern Iowa back on Sept. 15 at Kinnick Stadium.

Garmon is the fourth running back to leave the program either voluntarily or by dismissal during this calendar year. Last January, former running backs Marcus Coker and Mika’il McCall both transferred and on Aug. 1, head coach Kirk Ferentz dismissed De’Andre Johnson from the team following a pair of legal run-ins in late July.
